  • The latest driver can be downloaded from the following website. However, since it is for Windows XP, it may be not compatible with Windows 7 RC. You may give it a try. If it does not work, I am afraid that the network adapter will not work with Windows 7 RC.

  • Hi Spot,
     Which wireless card is installed in the laptop, HP/Compaq list a few for that unit, have you tried installing the Adapter User Interface in compatability mode?

    I am running a Broadcom 802.11g card in my Acer without a problem, search for Vista/Win7 drivers for the actual WLAN card and install those, I did have problems with Intels 2915ABG card so I swapped it out for the broadcom, does the Laptop have a wireless on/off button, have you tried it to see what happens?

    Regards Fagan
