Solved!

HP XW4600 801.11 n WLAN driver needed ASAP!

HP Recommended
XW4600 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Seems HP can NOT locate the needed driver for this device (801.11 n WLAN). Device Manager shows error symbol. This is the device ID: USB\VID_148F&PID_7601&REV_0000
USB\VID_148F&PID_7601

Compatible ID: USB\Class_FF&SubClass_FF&Prot_FF
USB\Class_FF&SubClass_FF
USB\Class_FF

Config Flags: 00000040
CONFIGFLAG_FAILEDINSTALL

Not sure what more info needed here. Point me to the right driver please! I installed the Broadcom xTreme Gigabyte update and did not help. ALL drivers updated through HP except for this.

Hi:

 

Try the W7 wireless driver from this link and see if it works.

The file shows driver support for the hardware ID you posted...
