Windows XP Wireless Driver Needed for Presario F572US

I just installed Windows XP Professional SP3 on my Compaq Presario F572US that came pre-installed with Windows Vista.

I have been able to find all the drivers I need for it to run Windows XP with the exception of the Wireless Driver.

Does anyone know of a wireless driver that will work on this computer?

Thank you,
Matt

Do a system Scan from driveragent.com It will do a complete system scan of your computer and give you a link to the correct driver you need or Go on HP website.

Smoken2337 - I tried driveragent.com and scanned my computer but did not come up saying I was missing or needed a wireless driver. It only comes up saying I am missing a VGA compatible and a support dual IDE controller. I tried hp.com I have had no luck finding one that works with my laptop.

craigothy - I have tried that driver already and it did not work. The model that the driver you recommended is actually where I found all my other drivers but the broadcom wireless driver did not work.

Thanks for trying.

Is it possible that the wireless could have gone bad on my laptop? I am finding numerous recommendations on what to use for the wireless driver but none seem to be working. I'm pretty sure I am installing the drivers correctly.

You said you rolled it back to XP. Some systems from HP are not able to roll back to XP becasue the hardware in the system did not have any XP drivers created. Only vista drivers where created. I would call HP and ask them. 1-800-474-6836
