hp mini note. cannot connect wirelessly.


sorry if this is a bit of a noob question, but I have just purchased a hp mini-note to replace my damaged acer aspire. My problem is that I cannot get it to connect by wi-fi. It will connect ok with the cable from my Belkin adsl2+ router. I never had this problem with my acer, that just picked up my connection from switch on, so I really don't know what I need to do.
my notebook has a BCM4312 802.00a/b/g card and a Netxtreme BCM5788 gigabit ethernet.
many thanks for any help offered.

This should do the trick, install this, then reboot, should work.

If this doesn't work, which it should, then try installing the appropriate driver for your wireless card, if then you don't succeed, then try asking one of the gurus or moderators here at LQ.
