Hi have you tried the HP support for drivers from here :-

 

http://www8.hp.com/uk/en/drivers.html

 

You will need a working computer to download the drivers to either a flash drive or a CD, or other form of external memory.

 

Nev.

Yikes, 3 devices (LAN, WiFi and Bluetooth) with multiple possible manufacturers.

 

Let's see what you really have.

 

Open Device Manager and expand Network Adapters.

Right click on the 1st and select Properties.

Click on the Detail tab.

Under Property click in the drop down and select Hardware Ids. Copy the one that looks something like this:

 

PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_366D17AA

 

and paste it here. To copy, click on the entry to select it then press Ctrl+C to copy to the clip board.

Repeat for the other two.

 

We can then use those Hardware Ids to do a Google search to try to figure out exactly what hardware you have.

Looks like I misread the Hardware ID. Try this one:

PCI/VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_1671103C

Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows
