This unit got some viruses,  reloaded win7 and everything works fine except for the wireless connection. In the DM esepcially under Network Adapters, I am not seeing any problems with any devices, it shows 802.11n wireless Lan Card. I can see my network and put in my password to connect to my network but it is showing "limited connectivity"? I have 3 other computers her eon my netowrk, all wireless and no connection issues with any of them, with a wired ethernet connection straight to my router, no issues with this desktop, does this mean maybe the viruses has damaged the unit's built in wireless card?

Did you reinstall the wireless LAN driver ?

 

System doesn't appear to be supported by HP for Win 7, so I would try the Vista drivers.

 

Is this a P6000 desktop...or a DV6000 laptop?  Neither has Win 7 drivers at the HP website.

Actually, I am having problems finding the drivers for this unit, all I am finding is a link to a p60711? Can you send me a link to the vista drivers you found please?

I would use the 6071 drivers, since they are for 6000 series...and they reflect Win 7 support.

Unless I am mistaken, under Network, I am only seeing a Network controller driver and not a wireless driver?

Actually we found the problem, this was a PCI wireless card and the guy did not bring the antenna with it, that's why the low signal strength, appreciate the help here of course!
