Re: slow connection with broadcom netxtreme 57xx
Pls try running a network tweak such as DrTCP and/or TCPOptimizer. Additionally, you may want to re-check/re-configure your anti-virus and determine if it is in anyway hampering your network connection.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

First of all are you sure your Internet card is working? there should be 2 lights at the back of your CPU in the Internet port when you connect the RJ45 or Internet cable they suppose to blink to show they receive and sending data. Are you sure you the RJ45 cables are at their right places? you can always identify them by their colors.If you think every is ok with your connection and your modem is sending Internet signal you can always buy an Internet adapter (USB) to resolve your problem.

A network driver will just keep your computer to communicate with the internet and it has nothing to do with the speed and strength of your internet. For that, you need to contact your internet service provider.
If you want to optimize your computer's performance to its best though, you can download and install RadarSync. It is driver updater which can make your computer up to date. However, just like what I just indicated earlier that it won't affect the speed of your internet. RadarSync can do a lot of things that are automated and can keep your computer to automatically fix driver problems.

Desktop computers do not usually have a wireless card installed. They will have a built-in LAN card that uses a LAN cable. If you want to connect your computer using a wireless connection then you will need to install a wireless card in your computer and configure it to communicate with your wireless router. Otherwise you can connect to your wireless router using a LAN cable. Your wireless router may have built-in LAN ports and you can connect your computer to the wireless router using a network cable.
I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

Most desktops need to be connected with a wire to your network because most desktop computers do not come with a wireless NIC (network interface card). If you are not sure if yours has one you can get your service tag off of your computer and type it in the Dell website (link below) under drivers and downloads and look at the original configuration for your system. If you have a Wireless NIC card in your desktop it should connect just like your laptop computers did. If not you may have a defective wireless card.
Try to check in your wife's computer the network connection make sure that the LAN connection is not disabled and has a DHCP configuration, on the TCP/IP settings choose obtain IP address automatically, and also make sure you have the same workgroup name.
