Windows 7: Broadcom 802.11n network adapter

Broadcom 802.11n network adapter

Hello. First time. Installed Windows 7 on two home-network computers. Everything appeared to be good, including networking, but I could not access printers (linked through each computer) with the opposite computer. Windows update offered an update for the Broadcom 802.11n network adapter, but when I installed the update I completely lost the network. I had to revert to the old driver in order to reestablish the network. But the printers still are not recognized. The network adapter on the secondary computer is a Linksys WMP300N.

I did try turning the router off for ten seconds with the updated driver but that had no effect.

Anyone had this problem? TIA

I had the same thing happen, but with a windows update of the driver. I also was able to recover by rolling back the driver in the device manager. The update was dated, but I did not think to note it before I reverted. It was not in my update list a few weeks ago.

I'm a little confused about what this network map looks like. Are the printers plugged into the router or into the computers?
