I'm frustrated. I have a Pavilion LK237AV Laptop with a Broadcom 4313GN 802.11 WiFi adapter - Driver dated 5/8/2012, Version 5.100.82.139; as far as I can see from HP's site, this is the latest. In the last month when I try Windows Update to look for udates, it hangs. I reboot, and it Has found an update! (Usually MS Security Essentials). When I start to download this, it gets to 99% and sticks there. I don't get the problem if I use the LAN adapter, but this is not convenient with my topology.

You can use this utility to try a repair on the adapter. Select Advanced Repair.

The BCM4313 is not a very common wireless chip. At least the drivers are not being updated. You may want to look at getting one of these. It uses a Realtek chipset and they are usually pretty good at updating drivers.

Obligato! I'm getting old I guess, and forgetting 1st principles; 'netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt' should do the trick. DOS is still da Man!
