i have a network adapter called "Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter(its wireless)" and my computer says it is experiencing driver or hardware issues. I recentley have just re-installed vista on my computer from the disc that comes with it.,and everything on it got deleted(i wanted that to happen). I have done this once before, and my dad has figured out to connect to the internet on it before, but now he can't.
i also have a disc that has the drivers that came with my computer, i installed the one that i had on before i re-installed vista, and it says under Device Status: This device cannot start. (Code 10) Click 'Check for solutions'.. but i csn't go on the internet on that computer, so im asking here, if you need any more info to help me, i can probably provide you with it.

thanks :huh:

*More info* - Driver Version 4.82.28.56 - Driver Date 6/21/2006.

well, when i hit update it says the best software for my device is already installed, and i don't know where else to get a more updated version of it.
and i can't update it online, because i cant connect to the internet on it.
