Hi:

 

The easiest way to find out what notebook you have is to let the HP tool identify it for you:

 

http://h20270.www2.hp.com/ediags/gmn2/welcome.aspx?lc=en&cc=us

 

However, there may be several wireless cards that can be installed in your notebook.

 

You can ID the network card...Click on the missing device in the device manager.

 

Click on the details tab. If you are running XP, post the top string of characters you see.

 

If you are running Vista or W7, in the Properties Drop down list, select the second item (Hardware ID's).

 

Post the top string of characters you see.  Those will ID the manufacturer and model of the network card.

 

Then I can send you the link to the drivers.

 

Also, post the operating system you are running and if it is 32 or 64 bit.

Hi:

 

You have the Ralink wireless adapter.

 

Since you didn't mention what version or what bit operating system you have, I am assuming Windows 7.

 

This is the latest driver.

If your Ralink card also has built in Bluetooth, then you need this driver too:
