    Default hp/compaq support sucks.monkeys with scripts in in

    want to waste some time?
    just call hp/compaq support and try to get drivers for a hnw-200 usb wireless adapter.
    be prepared to hang up several times to get someone you can sorta understand.
    just another reason to NEVER buy a name brand computer.
    if they screw up drivers for a nic i would hate to have to deal with these clowns for a major piece of hardware or a system.

    Snakebite, does this help? Their website [HP/Compaq] usually has all the drivers you could hope for. It is in my opinion that you should never call the manufacturer for drivers for a product as 90% of the time they don't manufacture their own products, so haven't a clue as to what you are needing. Besides, some hardware selections like network cards are not proprietary, so virtually any USB/PCMCIA wireless card should work.

    We use HP/compaq at work. Our agreement with them states that we get local support. Some of our support requests end up in an Indian call centre.

    i dissasembled the card and found drivers for it that way.
    its an atmel chipset and was built by gemtek if anyone else has this problem.
    and the drivers for this card are not found anywhere on hp/compuke.
    gemtek even has linux drivers for it.
    btw its a wl-280

    snakebite,

    I agree. Their service is horrible. I will never but another Hp/Compaq again. That being said, I just built a new PC last night. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] It's not a real screamer, but it's O.K. AMD XP 3000 processor, pc 2700 ram, Soyo motherboard...
