Wlan W200 connection problem

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.

    Found my solution. In the router setup I had to change the setting from the "mixed" to the "Mixed BG".
















































    draw_table(MAINFUN,wlantopmenu.basicset);

    Basic Wireless Settings



    draw_table(SUBFUN,"");






    Capture(wlansetup.networkmode)
    Network Mode:


    var NAME = new Array("mixed", "bg-mixed", "g-only", "b-only", "n-only", "disabled");
    var STRING = new Array(wlansetup.mixed, wlansetup.bgmixed, wlansetup.gonly, wlansetup.bonly, wlansetup.nonly, share.disabled);
    var wl_net_mode = 'bg-mixed';
    var selected;
    for(i=0;i if(wl_net_mode == NAME[i]) selected = "selected";
    else selected = "";
    document.write(""+STRING[i]+"");
    }

    Mixed
    BG-Mixed
    Wireless-G Only
    Wireless-B Only
    Wireless-N
    Only
    Disabled

    draw_table(SUBFUN,"");

    Radio Band:


    var NAME = new Array("0", "20", "40");
    var STRING = new Array(share.auto, wlansetup.standard20, wlansetup.wide40);
    var selected;
    for(i=0;i if(wl_nbw == NAME[i]) selected = "selected";
    else selected = "";
    if(wl_phytype == 'g' && (NAME[i] == '0' || NAME[i] == '40')) continue; // This is a 11g card
    if(wl_40m_disable == '1' && (NAME[i] == '0' || NAME[i] == '40')) continue; // Doesn't support 40MHz
    document.write(""+STRING[i]+"");
    }
    if(wl_channel == 0) document.wireless._wl_nbw[0].selected = true;

    Auto

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.

    NO NEED TO GO THRU THAT HERE THIS WORKS FOR SURE.
    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:

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.

Compaq evo n610c wireless lan w200 - is network card internal? or do i need to purchase a card to get my computer to work at a wi-fi location...i need to know what i have to do to get internet at other...


The EVO 610 has a built-in modem and a network LAN but no wireless LAN.
If you wish to connect to the Internet at home and elsewhere you have a few options.
You can use a PCMCIA wireless network card or a USB wireless device. These devices will allow you to connect to WiFi places such as Internet cafes or free WiFi locations such as McDonalads, Starbucks and airports etc.
OR
You can use an Internet Service Provider that provides country and or state wide roaming access, and they usually use wireless netword cards that integrate with the mobile (G3) network.

You need to check with various Internet Service Providers to see what they offer, the various plans, costs and also if they offer roaming access.
Be aware that connecting to public WiFi networks can have security issues if you are not protected.

Wireless network connection problem


Ok with a peripheral on USB or on PC card bay you can try to connect to a Wireless lan:
Please check this tip on the subject
To connect to an existing WLAN you must be sure your wireless card is working: I assume you installed all the related sw coming with the wlan card.
Using the card installed driver check card is enabled and running (in Control Panel/Network connection should be visible and enabled)
Then you can connect to an open Wi-Fi HOTSPOT or to your WLAN you configure with a router connected to your internet modem.
  1. To connect to an existing HOTSPOT: find a location where you know a wi-fi access point (HOTSPOT) is active: Internet cafe,, library, airport,, station, hotel etc.your card should be able to find the existing network when you select "show existing network" in wlan driver. Connect if network is "unsecure" (= no password or key is required) or ask for password if you can get it for a fee (hotel)
  2. To connect to your home or office WLAN be sure to use a router (or access point) with same standard of your card (802-11G or B or A or N) with same security protocol (WEP or WPA) and configure your router Internet access BEFORE wireless access. Connect your PC to your router using a LAN cable and be sure you can browse through the router.(contact your ISP for router specs if you need it: PPOA/E and other). Follow the tip and your router doc for settings

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 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:
