The following came up as part of a Win 7 update.

"Broadcom - Network - Broadcom 4313 802.11b/g/n
Download size: 4.0 MB"

Any one any idea what it is for and is it necessary to install? I did a Google check, and it seems to relate to a number of producys and had a number of HP download versions. My machine is a HP dv7 4131sa Entertainment laptop

Thanks

TonyV.

Its for a Broadcom 4313 Wireless card.

If you haven't got one you don't need to download it.

It's your wireless LAN so you probably do need it.

I do have a wireless card, but have no idea what sort it is, so I suppose the next question is how do I find out?

Cheers

Just checked hardware in Device Manager and there is one there of that number in Network Adapters, so I had better let in install.

Thanks
