My girlfriend has just moved in, and lo and behold, finally has access to a wired connection. (Prior to this, she has been using a little wireless USB network dongle to connect)
Anyway, we installed windows 7 on her computer about 5 months ago, and everything was working dandy. Until she tried plugging directly into the router. She can still connect using the USB dongle, however that is slow. We tried uninstalling the network driver, and restarting windows to allow it to find the driver itself, but it looks for the driver BEFORE it connects via USB, therefore it fails to download a driver.
We've tried going to the HP website and looking for a driver there, but it doesn't exist.
Any thoughts on how we can get her onboard network card to start working?
She is on an HP Media Center PC m1050e. It's the PU061AV. The entire computer is the "kit" computer except for the RAM which we upgraded.
Anyway, any help you could offer would be fantastic! I've never really had driver issues with Windows7, and so as of now, I'm kinda at a loss!
