    Hi guys.

    Put W7 on my mates laptop a Hi Grade m670s.
    All went well apart from one thing, the WLAN wont work. i have spent the last two hours searching and trying every driver i could lay my hands on and none would work.

    Anybody had owt similar happen and found a sollution ?

    :confused:

    Is there nothing under optional Windows updates and the Vista one doesn't work? You may be out of luck if the answers are no.

    What wireless does it have? Please post it with the model (e.g. Realtek RTL8187B) :)

    Thanks for all the replies...

    Sorry for not getting back sooner but work dont like it when i take a PC in...LOL...

    It is indeed the Realtek RTL8187B.

    thanks for those links too. They were part of the the collection that didnt work.

    Took the laptop back last night explaining the problem. He wasnt too bothered. he said he would rather have W7 with no WLAN than have Vista any day.
    The thing is very old. falling in bits but he wont go buy a new one.

    thanks again..
