Need driver for wireless card G79G 802.11bg WLAN

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Elite M9250f
Microsoft Windows Vista

I am trying to restore my HP Desktop to it's factory reset but I have some problems.  I don't have the disk that came with the system and the hard drive crashed completely.  I got a replacement hard drive and I have a Windows Vista 64bit disk that I was able to use to restore the OS but I am having a devil of a time finding the drivers.  The main one that eludes me is the driver for the wireless LAN card.  It is a G79G slim card.  I have searched the internet and most sites are scams and the drivers I find don't work as I think they are just fakes.  Any help with this driver would be greatly appreciated as HP has take this desktop off its list of supported machines.
