Hi

Please remove your email address.

The product you searched for is no longer supported by HP.

 

So who told you?

What driver was it that you need?

Have you ever has a WiFi connection?

Hi, @Scullywully 

 

According to the product specs for your PC, it only came with wired networking, and a modem, which you connect to a telephone line.

 

No wireless networking hardware was included.

So if you want to connect your PC wirelessly, you will need to purchase a wireless network adapter.

 

The easiest thing to do in that situation would be to purchase an external USB wifi adapter.


Make sure you get one that still has support for Windows Vista.

 

If you need the ethernet (wired networking driver), then I have posted it at the link below for Vista 32 bit.

 

It is included in the nVidia chipset driver.
