Pavilion G6-1202eh network card driver

 Hello,

 

I bought a HP Pavilion G6-1202eh notebook and i installed a Windows Vista(32bit). The device manager show that i have a Realtek RTL8101 network card, but in the driver list(on the HP website) i cant find this type only, the Realtek RTL8188CE.

What i should do in this situation?( im beginner in system installation-->it was my first windows install).

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Go into Device Manager, right click on the Realtek device and select Properties.  Click the Details tab, choose Hardware Ids from the dropdown box and post back with the details shown under Value.

 

Regards,

Hi:

 

It sounds like you need the 8101 driver which you can download and install from the link below:

 

Download and install the 5th one on the list.

Re: Pavilion G6-1202eh network card driver

Thank you, the yellow label was disappeared.

But it still cant connect to the wifi, and the fn key isnt working, so the wifi led on the F12 key is red/orange. Any idea for this?

Hi:

 

Are the drivers installed for your wireless adapter? 

 

Is it present in the device manager under network adapters?

Re: Pavilion G6-1202eh network card driver

Yes, the network adapters driver is good.

But i find another yellow labels in device manager. There is a point int the list called other devices(this is my translation because my windows is hungarian), and there are 3 other option: Network controller, PCI device, SM buscontroller. They have yellow labels too.

What drivers should i download?

 

And othe problems: My touchpad switch on/off "button" is not working, and the scrolling with two finger on touchpad is also not working. And th Function key also not working(i switch it in setup menu enabled /disabled too)

 

Thanks.

Hi:

 

Please click on each missing device in the device manager. Then click on the details tab.

 

In the Properties drop down list, select the second item (Hardware ID's).

 

Post the top string of characters you see. Those will identify the type and model of the devices you are missing and I can try and find drivers for them.

 

You wireless card won't turn on because that network controller is your wireless card that needs the driver. But there are several wireless cards your model can have, so I need the hardware ID code for it.

 

Try installing this quick launch buttons software and see if it gets some of those buttons to work.

Re: Pavilion G6-1202eh network card driver

Hi:

 

Yes that is the correct answer I was looking for. You have an Atheros wireless adapter.

 

These drivers should work for it.

Re: Pavilion G6-1202eh network card driver

Thank you very much.

 

Can you tell me whats the difference between the network card and the wireless adapter? I thought that it is the same thing...
