WLAN Multiport W200 not connecting to wireless network

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.

    I installed a new Linksys router. My Wlan W200 will not work. I get a blue screen and the system shuts down. My Dell with an internal net adapter works fine. Any help with my Evo N610c with the multiport to configure with the network.

    I have the same problem. I formatted the harddisk and made a new installation. At the moment I reinstalled the driver for W200 I got a blue screen :-(

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......

    GUYS THIS IS A SIMPLE FIX I HAVE THE SAME LAPTOP FOLLOW THESE STEPS.
    Sup guys i found the cure to this horroble blue screen death for this N610c. Ok i called hp and they wanted $69.99 for tech support well just imagine what i told them to do lol. Anyway i did my research and guess what i found out. That the updated driver is made to screw up your connection so that you have to call tech support and they can steal your money.

    Im a computer technician since 1990 and what i discover was that beautiful driver that works here is a list of drivers that cannot be used on the Evo N610C because it causes conflits that no one can fix i know for sure.

    List of the no no drivers are:

    These drivers will make your screen go from windows to BLUE.

    sp29156

    sp28252

    sp29156

    Here is how i fixed the problem i deleted everything that had to do with LANMultiport drivers every single one then i searched my laptop to remove the rest of the lost files.

    Once that was done the i installed this driver (sp23031)

    Once that was installed and the puter rebooted the wifi card found my wireless connection and asked me to input my Network Key and walla it works great now without any problems.

    Im using windows XP Home i just bought memory cause im installing windows 7 32 bit.



    Finally the key is this driver (sp23031) for both home and pro eddition.

    Here is the link to download your driver:

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.

W200 cause a blue screen


First of all: If you install SP2 you don't have to install SP1 over it. It already did. Secondly, don't install SP3, it destroys Windows XP.
Try reinsalling the PC with SP2, install the drivers and do nothing else, see if that helps.

If not, by all means post back here,

Multiport w200 wireless goes to blue_screen with belkin G+ router


http://www.fixya.com/support/t612983-blue_screen_hp_wlan_multiport_w200 seems to have the solution.

It says:

Rollback the W200 driver to version 1.00C. Subsequent drivers are incompatible with XP SP2.

Unfortunately, WPA support came in version 1.00E, so W200 + XpSp2 = no WPA support. :(



I removed my wirelss drivers and compaq wireless client software, then installed the older driver from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=hb-13082-1&lc=en&cc=fr&dlc=en&os=228&product=235687&lang=en which is sp23031. This seems to have worked. s.gif

Wlan W200 connection problem


There is a solution to this, and you won't have to buy a new card. The folks at HP, however smart in their design of this laptop, have not properly updated the bug fix for the wlan w200 drivers. What you'll need to do is actually take back your network adapter driver all the way back to Version 1.0 revision C. I did this with an n610c that I got for free because it was BSOD'ing every time the wireless was turned on. For the most part the wireless can handle older routers and wlan areas, but will BSOD when within range of a wireless "N" adapter. Simply download the driver version 1.0c and you should have no more issues.

Tip: You can disable the card manually by pressing your "Fn + F2" keys, rather than trying to navigate your menus before getting the BSOD.
