Your need to use one or the other wireless manager applications - Windows or the application that came with the Mini-PC Card (Broadcom BCM94306MP). Sounds like Windows is managing the device. Check your Wireless Network settings.
If the adapter is present(uninstalled), it should be listed in device manager under other devices and NOT under network adapters. If you see the adapter there, right click it and click on update drivers. If you don't see the adapter even under other devices in device manager, you can restart the computer and check. If still can't see, check with a computer hardware technician who will open your computer and check if the wireless card is being provided with power and if the physical connections are ok.
For further clarifications, please revert! Thanks for asking.
Some HP notebooks will disable the wireless card when you connect an ethernet cable. Or it could have power saving turned on for that device. Check device properties and disable powersaving mode for any network devices. If it has been functioning fine and this is a recent development, your network card could be failing but there isn't enough data at this point to make that conclusion.
You can run HP update to download and install drivers on your PC/Laptop, or run Microsoft update too.
Your HP PC came with a tool called Recovery Manager, Click the vista start menu and in the search bar type (Recovery Manager) without the parenthesis and it should display programs like RECOVERY DISC CREATION and RECOVERY MANAGER , please select the RECOVERY MANAGER an if you have VISTA USER ACCOUNT CONTROL turned on you will have to allow the program to run. OK, once program launch, select the advance Options and click on HARDWARE DRIVER RE-INSTALLATION and click next. follow the screen instructions to re-install the driver or drivers. Make sure you are not running any other program when using recovery manager. GOOD LUCK
are you sure the connection in "my network places" is for that adaptor? try going to system properties - hardware - deivice manager and check the network card is properly installed there. you may need to update the drivers which u will obvioucly have to download from another computer.
I am on an HP desktop at this time and there is the ability to create install cds from a recovery partition (check for menu items I believe might be in the HP folder) and to reinstall back to the factory is a ansl a menu option as well as a boot option I believe. BEWARE OF THESE RESTORE OPTIONS BECAUSE YOU MAY WELL LOSE ANY PROGRAMS AND DATA ADDED TO THE MACHINE SINCE YOU GOT IT. Always have a backup so you can retrieve your data and be prepared with your application CDs to reinstall, if necessary.
