Driver to connect to wireless network

Hi,

Im pretty new to windows 7 and all but my mom bought me this new computer and it has windows7 as OS, ive always used windows xp so im not very knowledgeable about the system and now it says i cant connect to the wireless network. Is there any drivers or something i can install to make it work? My mom asked my uncle to look into it, idk what he did but he said the drivers wasnt out yet for windows 7.

Its a stational comp if u didnt get that already.

Thx for all the help

Hi xArch , welcome to the forums , Have a look in device manager and see if your network card is listed. if it is right click on it and "update driver" , If you would be so kind and tell us the manf/model of your pc we will be able to assist you further

Welcome to SevenForums xArch, Yes thats the way to do it dl to another pc and then transfer your dl to the hp
You are connecting to the router by a cable right or do you have a wireless adapter? Good luck to you with your problem

- apologies..
- actually, I thought you had an adapter (dongle)
- a network card is something different altogether..

- as recommended, you'd best go via HP's support/download site
- they should provide the essential updates to the drivers for your rig..
