Question about Compaq Presario V6310US Notebook
My system is not detecting Broadcom 802.11 wireless adapter in my HP Pavillion dv7-1137US Entertainment Notebook PC series laptop. I am running windows vista ultimate and it was working great till I installed SP1. It's no where and It's not even listed as Unknown Device. I tried HP recovery manager to reinstall hardware drivers but it didn't help. I tried to add it using Add new hardware wizard but I didn't see the device in list. I did try to use the HP wireless assistant but it won't enable and again it is listed. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance.
Looks like I have the same problem. Vista SP1 was installed today, and WiFi stopped working. The LED for WiFi is red regardless of how I move the switch, the device manager does not even see the Network adapter. Windows Updates lists an updated driver, but when I try to install that driver I get a "Windows Update Error 800f020b" which means that I cannot update a driver for a device that is not connected. So I am in a catch-22 - I cannot update the driver because the device is not visible, and the device is apparently not visible because SP1 messed it up... Any solution would be appreciated. Perhaps I'll try uninstalling SP1 next.
My suggestion would be to uninstall SP1 if the wireless driver update does not work and wait until a later time to reinstall SP1 since it is apparent the problem occurred with the SP1 update. I'm surprised the HP Recovery didn't resolve it - unless it wasn't taken back to to Factory Default - which would be extreme as you would loose all data, software and updates.
