    I have the same problem and it's correct, that the router is the problem. I don't know what exactly happend to the driver version 1.00F, but it DOESN'T WORK !!!

    So ... I will write an email to compaq support to help me fix this problem.
    If they doesn't try to fix it, i would install Windows 2000 again :D

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 do not Think it is the router. I believe it is a problem with how the card interacts with the machine. The solution is probably a driver change/ update which HP/ Compaq do not provide. If you look at the BSOD you will notice that the error points to probable driver issues. The device seems to work but how the device uses RAM / memory is the issue. Perhaps disabling the wired connection might work but othrt forums suggest that some Compaq Multipoet W200 might have Agere chips which WILL NOT function proprly with Intel drivers.

I am going to try some of their drivers, more soon,

Hi Guys. Compaq Evo N610C equipped with Wlan Multiport w200. Can not connect to equipment using WPA2 encryption. Do you know a solution ???? Thanks


Yes you have to go to your internet's routers web setting page and change your settings from whatever you have now to WEP and follow these instructions.
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:

It works! Please hit me up a feedback

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,
Yannick.

Compaq wlan w200 bsod with wrt54gs router


Check your router config for wireless "N". if it's there, disable it. You can also use the driver on the compaq to go back to the install of driver 1.0c

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.

WLAN Multiport W200 not connecting to wireless network


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:
