Check for whatever versions of the Nvidia network drivers you can find and try them. Some of them are buggy when used with Windows Vista and even worse with Windows 7, but no one has ever done anything to fix them. And the Nvidia chipset might have some of the guilt. But, though HP uses these Nvidia parts, as far as Nvidia is concerned it is old stuff they aren't interested in. Some of the older drivers are no longer available. HP, though still buying the parts and using them, doesn't seem to pressure Nvidia to fix things.
The actual network chip is a Marvell one, but not one Marvell supports, so we're stuck with Nvidia for any solutions.
If you can't find one that works for you, you could try a different network adaptor.
Ultimately our solution was to also change our router.
