Topic: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

Hi,
I have got a HP Pavillion dv6-2150es that has a broadcom 4357 device.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prod … ct=4105448

The HWID:
VEN_14e4&DEV_4357&SUBSYS_145e103c (desc: 'Broadcom Corporation Device 4357 (rev 01)')

I have found out a driver pack:

http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles … p;SC=PA_6E

But it gives an error on the INF file. how can I fix it?

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

Well, that acer driver is probably the wrong one then! smile
Did you try this download? http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/soft … ct=4105448
I just released DriverPack WLAN 10.02 today.  Can you give that a try and report back?

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

The wireless Assistant is an application. nor a driver. i will have a look the 10.02 WLAN pack.

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

Was this ever resolved?

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

Hi,
the trouble is that I have the PC/laptops only a few days, so I am not able to test them after that period. As soon as I get that laptop back I will test again, but as far as I  remember that WLAN pack did not resolve the problem.

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

Refer to the wireless user guide:   http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01851044.pdf
this is the latest win7 driver(according to hp):   ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp48501-49000/sp48591.exe
it is very specific about the hardware id: 

BCM43XNG22_NT61, PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4357&SUBSYS_145E103C

The latest driver (v5.100.82.15) that i know of is here:
http://consumerdl.lenovo.com.cn/UserFil … N44WW1.exe

Ensure the wireless switch (if applicable) is set to the on position.  Ensure that you know your WiFi password, you will have to re-enter it.
  Use a program like 7-zip or winrar (for example) to right-click on the file, & extract the contents to a folder (IN6WLN44WW1 for example).  Navigate to the Broadcom\5.100.82.15\Driver folder.  Explore the folder that matches the version of windows you are using.  Right-Click on the Address bar, and...
For Win7:
select 'copy address as text'.
  Left-Click Start.  Type devmgmt.msc & press enter.  update the driver for your wlan with 'Browse my computer for driver software'.  Right-click & paste the previously copied address in the 'Search for driver in this location' list box.
If this doesn't automatically find it you could try to 'let me pick from a list of device drivers' & selecting the 'Have Disk' button.
For XP:
select 'copy'
  Left-Click Start.  Type devmgmt.msc & press enter.  update the driver for your wlan with 'Install from list or specific location'.  Right-click & paste the previously copied address in the 'Include this location in the search' list box.
If this doesn't automatically find it you could try to 'Don't search.  I will choose the driver to install' & selecting the 'Have Disk' button.

Beware, i cannot be responsible if this doesn't work, or messes up your system.  I hope this is of assistance, though. cool

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

I'm adding the below Win7 driver to the HP series in the next DriverPack WLAN.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/soft … p;sw_lang=
The .inf has an XP section so it should work fine.

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

oops.. that may have a XP component in the inf, yet it was a NDIS6 driver & WHQL'ed for win7.

[Manufacturer]
    %V_BCM% = BROADCOM, NTx86.6.0, NTamd64.6.0, NTx86.6.1, NTamd64.6.1

at least you didn't select the 64bit driver; not that i would know of anyone that would try a 64bit driver on XP. roll

Here's a candidate for Win-All, WHQL, HP specific, DriverVer=05/20/2011, 5.100.82.82  ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp53501-54000/sp53663.exe big_smile
readme-->ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp53501-54000/sp53663.html  It adds support for "PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_1795103C".

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

Implemented in \H for DriverPack WLAN 12.02 (in testing)

Re: [IMPL] HELP Broadcom 4357

Oops... error in H (untested though).  "bcmwl6.inf" is used (6 denoting NT6) instead of "bcmwl5.inf" as noted two posts up. (from cat file:  OSAttr:  2:6.1)

Updated to DriverVer=08/31/2011, 5.100.82.105 here --> ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp55001-55500/sp55140.exe big_smile
sp55140 readme -->ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp55001-55500/sp55140.html

bcmwl5.inf & related files are in: 'sp55140.exe\Setup.exe\Disk1\WinXP\Drivers\WinXP\WL'
