Network Controller Driver

Hewlett-packard / A1748x

Specs: Windows 7, 2.00ghz/ 1gb
Hi, i reinstalled this computer for someone
with Windows 7. The internet worked on the
original Windows Vista but they wanted 7.
Now the "Network Controller" device listed in
the device manager is not working. It has a
yellow !. I went on HP's website but none of
the drivers worked. What do you think would
work to fix this?

Were any of the drivers listed on HP website supposed to be applicable to WIN7? or were they only for Vista/XP etc?

If HP isn't able to assist then you may be able to identify the particular wireless NIC ( if it was made for HP by an outside vendor) and search there for a Win7 compatible driver. Worst case if you cannot get the onboard wireless to work is buy a Win7 compatible USB wireless NIC.

Well if the "network Controller" listed in devicemanager isn't the wireless PCI NIC then it is the onboard Ethernet NIC that is missing it's driver.

The wireless internet needs to be initiated and configured before it will connect.

If internet is wireless you don't need the ethernet driver anyway. Just configure the wireless connection (however that is done in Win7. I'm still an XP man)
