I installed driver for Broadcom 4322AG (HP Compaq 6735b laptop), it looks to work okay but it doesnt see any wireless network. Driver version is 4.170.77.3. I tried to install also HP's wireless assistant program but it doesnt work well with Server 2008. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this.

my experience with wifi managers is horrible. I'd suggest uninstalling any "third party" management tool, and just use the WMI (windows wireless management) tool.

The wireless adapter is being found correctly by your hardware manager though right? your running win2k8 server on your laptop?

Does it have a Network Connections window?
If so, and you right-click on the wireless adapter and choose Properties, is there a Wireless Networks tab in the dialog that opens?
If so, click the Advanced button on it and see if it's set to Ad-hoc only (that would prevent it from seeing Infrastructure networks).

I realise this question is already closed, but with Win 2008, you need to add the Wireless LAN service feature to be able to see any wireless networks
