Hi everyone

Ok, so, I have an HP laptop -I think the model is tz1000 - that has been working well on the same network for over a year now, and the wireless crapped out on me yesterday. I went to check the network connection, and it said that there are no networks to connect to. I refreshed the modem and the router, but that didnt help. I restarted my computer, but that didnt help either. So, I turned on the other computers on the network, and they all work just fine.

I ran a diagnostic and it said that my network controller card is not installed, or it's drivers are outdated....so I went into device manager, where it said that the card (or cards? - there were 4 items listed under networking. I know that one is a network card - Im honestly not sure what the others are, but I checked them all) are all working fine, and all the drivers are up to date.

So, now Im really confused. I cant connect to a network because, according to my diagnostics, my network card isnt working, but according to device manager, it's working just fine. How do you fix a problem that doesnt really need to be fixed? Can a network card be replaced in a notebook, or is it integrated with the mobo?

Please help!! I hate haing to use other peoples computers to go online :-)

Thanks a bunch, in advance!
