    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,

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.

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.

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:
