You have to install your wireless adapter driver

Thanks. I contacted Crucial support and they told me the same thing. I asked how I could download a driver when I couldn't get on the internet. He told me I had to re-install the old hard drive, download the driver, put it on a disc or flash drive and then re-install the new hard drive. I did not know you could move a driver around. unktim

Unfortunately there are a number of options with that model,
Atheros/broadcom/intel/Ralink and realtek.
Go to you device manger look for problem devices, i dont think it will be under Network adapters
(an !, yellow blob or small down arrow)
give me the details, i tell you where they are ON your system.

Torchwood,
Thanks for responding. I am having a lot of trouble finding info on these hp computers. With my Toshiba Tecra M10 I can get a lot of info by clicking on "system" but on our HPs they don't even mention the name of the processor or the number of cores and there is no mention of the hard drive at all.
I was wondering if I could run a system backup and then use a transfer cable with an ssd adapter before I install it.?

click on your network adapter you should have something like mine, if its not there then its likely youll have to open up your lappy and check the two connecters.

Go into properties on the wifi adapter
Check which band its set to 2.4 or 5.0 then see which is being broadcast by the Cisco router.

latest driver if its showing as MS driver
