Pebbly, i tried installing that network driver on the link u posted and i dont think its a network driver, it says its supposed to reduce delay during startup. I tried to download it anyways but it didnt work.

Can anyone confirm that its possible to connect a Staionary comp. with Windows 7 as OS to a wireless network? because some people i know says that windows 7 is missing alot of drivers because its still new.

A friend suggested me to buy a wireless USB adapter, would that make me able to take up signals and connect to wireless network while maintaining the highspeed of the net?

You did say that this is a new pc right. HP would have a driver installed with it. Did you go to Device manager and see if you can find a mention about a wireless adapter. Also try hooking to your router with a cable and when you get online Window 7 will be able to find you a driver for your wireless if one is not present. Are you going to Network sharing center and asking the wizard to connect to a new network. Lots of things have not been tried yet before you need to buy something. Good luck to you with this problem. Stay with us it can be solved

Dude really simple fix search on Hp's site for a Vista Driver, they are cross compatible. it will get the NC Going after an install and reboot, although you really need to look at the Card Type/Manufacture Model to get the correct driver. It should say on the Box For the HP or if its new it would have come with a Driver CD and it should be on there under LAN or WAN folder.

Let us know

@myzr7: There isnt anything about a wireless adapter in my device manager. Ive tried connecting the comp to the router and that works, but it doesnt take up any wireless signals.

I bought a couple of Rosewill Wireless USB network adapters to test on my different computers. Model RNX-EasyN1 So far they have worked on win98, w2k, XP, & win7 to see several secured & unsecured networks near me.

@ windows sniper: my moms horrible at comps and stuff so she's thrown away that stuff so idk how to find out manufacture number or what type of card. since im used to xp where most of the things run smoothly.

@DocBrown: Il think il try that out. Im not used to having problems detecting and connecting to wireless network so im not sure if its something thats blocking it or if its just that my stationary lacks a adapter to receive wireless net.

Did you dl the link Doc gave you and let it search for the name of your wireless nic ? I have looked up your hp model number and not all pc's come with the wireless built in adapter?
