Got a HP G6000 notebook and swapped vista on it for XP, Has been working fine but wireless connection went dead yeasterday. Went through Bt thought it was Homehub but turns out my wireless software could be corrupted. How do I find out what software I need , get it and is it easy to install. Any help appreciated.

Can you remove any reference to this software and reinstall with BT cd?Plug your router into pc first,once you have your network you can then go wireless,others may have better ideas.Would have thought that you can set up wired without cd,but may be wrong.

uninstall the wireless driver via device manager then reboot and let Windows reinstall it for you?

No cause nothing shows up in device manager, its like the wireless software has been wiped?
