    We're more of an Android site here, but I support Windows at work..

    It sounds like you need to find the driver for the wireless adapter. If you look in Device Manager, do you see the wireless card listed? Do you see an unidentified device and no wireless card?

    Yup - that network controller under other devices is likely your wireless card since I don't see it listed in the network adapters section. You'll need to track down the driver for that component and get it installed.

    Our sister site Windows Central may be more helpful...?

    I would check with the laptop manufacturer to see if their support site offers a driver download for that network adapter. Without knowing what laptop you're using we can't even begin to guess what network controller it has in it. I agree with @Tim1954 that windowscentral.com might be a better place to ask, but they'll need details to be able to help.

    Curious - why install 32-bit instead of 64-bit? Every CPU these days is 64-bit, and 32-bit limits your RAM to 4 GB regardless of what's installed in the system (addressing limitations of 32-bit).

    Well, that depends on what wireless card is in your PC...

    Exactly what you need, but you need to know what card was installed in your PC in order to get the correct one.

    Why did you install the 32bit version of Windows? Your laptop likely can support the 64bit version. Also that driver page you listed only shows 64bit drivers and can NOT be changed to 32bit. Those drivers might not exist.


    Perhaps contact HP support on this?
