The ISP is fine because the wireless side is working.

If you are just using the chipset drivers that won't make it work. I'm not sure why the drivers for the Nvidia adaptor aren't showing up at the HP site but that seems kind of strange to me.

Besides the driver I'd say that Norton is the most likely cause.

Yes the disable Receive-Side Scaling (RSS fix has been around for quite awhile although the Nvidia drivers have been fixed since then so it hasn't been a problem for awhile, though it may be worth a try.

You can also access that setting in Device Manger at the network adaptor interface without having to use the command prompt.

Sorry for resurrecting a long dead thread but this is one of the first results from Google for "Nvidia nForce Networking Controller." I was having a similar problem and discovered the solution quite by accident. Your mileage may vary but here's what worked for me, hopefully it'll work for you as well.

There seems to be a problem between the BIOS and Windows 7 communicating the MAC address of the controller. In my case, Windows interpretted the pairs of bits in reverse order. For example, the true MAC address of the controller would be "01-23-45-67-89-10" but ipconfig /all displays this as "10-89-67-45-23-01" To be sure this is what's happening, I recommend you first boot into the BIOS and configure your PC to boot from PXE. You can ask Google how to do this. Make sure you don't have any Etherboot clients running while you do this otherwise you'll boot to them. This is just a way to find out the MAC address. Once you've changed your boot order so PXE/Etherboot is first, save and exit. Your computer will restart and attempt to boot to the network. While it's trying to find a DHCP server it should display the MAC address of the controller. It'll be a sequence of six pairs of bytes in hexadecimal form as displayed above. Write this down. Once you have the MAC address from the BIOS hit Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart, boot back into the BIOS and change your boot order and PXE/Etherboot settings back to the way they were then save to CMOS and exit. Once Windows boots up again, open device manager, collapse "Network adapters", double click on "NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller" and go to the "Advanced" tab. Then select "Network Address" in the property menu, choose to input a value and then type the MAC Address your recorded earlier as a single 12-digit number with no dashes or colons in between. Click "OK" and close device manager. Wait for a bit while Windows restarts the network adapter. When that is finished, you should be networking away.
