Drivers for XP in the current package DP_WLAN_wnt5_x86-32_1007 there, but not sure that the suit - the folder D\W\Br0\

; X86 - Win9x, Win2K, WinXP
%BCM430N_DeviceDesc% = BCM43XNG20, PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727; Brcm
BCM430N_DeviceDesc = "Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter"

For other operating systems you will probably need to change the inf-file itself, following this recommendation, the developer now:

; From Windows Server 2003 SP1, Manufacturer requires amd64 declaration
; To differentiate with ia64
; For WinVista and Win7, replace NTamd64 with
; NTx86.6.0, NTamd64.6.0, NTx86.6.1, NTamd64.6.1.
% V_BCM% = BROADCOM, NTamd64

It's not as bad as it seems, but not as good as it could be

Similar device on ProBook 6455b running XP. Using driver pack WLAN 11.01


Device shows a yellow circle with an exclamation mark in device manager.

Had to install this driver instead: … ob-83744-1

Try this, if you are adventurous!  PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727 already included by broadcom.  You may need to manually override. (Ignore the HP-specific stuff) smile … 150#p43150
