Hello Ritesh,

Could you please explain your problem in more detail? How is it not working, and how do you know? What have you done to try to fix it?

Thanks,

Becuase when I look in adapter settings I can't see my wireless.
But when it was working I saw my wireless network

Check in Device Manager and see if there are any yellow marks on your wireless card.

Also make sure the device is enabled.

I can't find my wireless card in device Manager and I think my wireless card is not installed correctly.

Please can you give me a like to download my wireless driver.


Wireless card: Broadcom 802.11 b/g

Many thanks,
Ritesh

Your card would be listed under Network Adapters, if it is detected by Windows.

Here's how to find the right driver for your card: Broadcom.com - Determining the Correct Driver for Broadcom Ethernet Products

Here is the latest driver from HP for your card: Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Vista Compaq Presario V3000 CTO Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Make sure the network card is firmly seated. You can also try the Ubuntu live CD and see if the network card is recognized there.

Otherwise, you may need to take the laptop into a repair shop to get the network card replaced.
