Question about HP WLAN MultiPort W200 802.11b Wireless Adapter
I have a Compaq EVO N610c with Windows XP SP2. My wireless adaptor is a WLAN Multiport W200. When I try to connect to the wireless network where I am temporarily staying at, there seems to be no repsonse. I can see the network but when I try to connect it just carries on trying until I get the message that it could not connect and that it has given up trying. I borrowed a Wireless-G Notebook Adapter WPC5 and I am able to connect without any problems. I have tried to update the driver of the Multiport W200 and have set the channel to the same as the borrowed adaptor but it still does not work. Any ideas? Thanks.
Anyone who has this problem: the problem is with the W200 driver that HPclaims you should use. Download this driver instead and your problems should be fixed:

Have the same problem here. N610c with W200 card and a DLink DIR-625.
If I set the router to 802.11BGN I get BSOD. Change it to B&G and I'm ok. Samething happens on my HP IQ770. HP is no help. I have N adapters in the house but can't set the router to N without blowing up HP crappy adapters.

Seems I am in the same boat. I brought my N610c over to my parents for Xmas and the W200 was trying to connect to the D-Link wireless router my dad has. It kept not finding anything and then, BAM, BSOD. Restarted.....same thing after 2 seconds of the Welcome screen. Something's messed up with the W200 somehow or another......

Is there an alternate driver we can use for the w200 while using vista? I might have to go back to xp.

The solution to the problem. I had to go into the router and change the settings to only pick up the B&G signal. The second I added or changed to the N setting BAM back to the blue screen.With the lower grade wireless signal the adapter works fine.

I also have the same problem - N410C using W200 during connection to D-Link DIR655.
One thing I found out is that if you don't broadcast the SSID, N410C can let you boot through welcome screen without BSOD. However, I couldn't find a way to connect to the hidden WiFi network even after manually creating a connection profile with the correct SSID.
