Question about HP WLAN MultiPort W200 802.11b Wireless Adapter
I recently placed a wireless router in my home. Everything is configured and working wired. My Evo N610c has a Wlan multiport W200 adapter. When I turn on the adapter I get a blue screen with an error message and the system has to be restarted. I have another computer and it seems to work fine on the wireless. I have tried to update the driver with no luck.
Any help would be greatful.
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.

Same problem here. Finally disabled it and went with a different wireless card and everything's fine. Still, there's an obvious problem with the W200 and HPQ should offer some sort of a fix, in my opinion.
