Broadcom driver, update?

I have a windows 7 with a Broadcom 802.11g driver. I need to update it or roll it back, as its causing a reacurring BSOD.

I cant roll it back or update through the computer, so how do I get one on that is compatible?

Download the latest driver from broadcom for your, I'm assuming laptop and save it. Next uninstall current driver and reboot. After reboot, go to the saved driver and install that one. If windows tries to install generic windows 7 driver, select quit or stop and exit out, then continue to install latest driver you saved.

With out specific details on make and model number of PC/laptop its hard to locate drivers for you. Please fill in your system specs with as much detail as you can.

I filled in System specs.

I also found a website with some drivers listed for windows 7 32bit, but I don't know which to download, if any.

I found this one on the HP website, would it be the right one to replace the one I have?
