    I believe your Realtek Ethernet adapter is Gigabit, but you're just going at 100Mbps due to your Ethernet cable or other networking hardware (this is normal). You should still be able to install the Realtek driver that is posted. :)

    Note that Gigabit is the highest designation, but it can certainly operate at the lower speeds/standards as well.

    hi, I'd like to change my wireless card (intel 5100) with a broadcom.
    Which broadcom card I should looking for? There are product numbers series I could check for?
    I found this information inside the hp/broadcom drivers:
    DEVICES SUPPORTED:
    Broadcom 802.11 a/b/g WLAN
    Broadcom 802.11 b/g WLAN
    Broadcom 4321AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter
    Broadcom 4322AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter
    Broadcom 43224AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter
    Broadcom 4313 802.11 b/g/n
    Broadcom 43225 802.11 b/g/n

    i.e. If I buy a BCM94321MC card, does it surely works?
    thank you

    actually, out of the box, my ethernet port was always listed as the realtek 8102...which i thought was strange. i have installed the latest "realtek PCIe family" driver, but it still only runs at 100mbps... :confused:

    i am open to suggestions!

    i upgraded to windows 7 a few weeks ago and it has been running smoothly up until this past week. one time i just left it on overnight and when i got home from work the next day it was at the login screen - i checked all logs on the event viewer and it appears to have spontaneously rebooted itself. since then i have noticed problems shutting down. when i shut it down, it stays on the "shutting down" screen for prolonged period of time.

    I think what I want to do is reinstall all the win7 drivers. does anyone know what is the best order to install these:
    intel chipset & graphics drivers for 4500MHD
    ethernet
    wifi
    rapid storage, protectsmart
    integrated bluetooth
    audio
    etc.

    Well, it's really no matter which is the first. But if you like, install the chipset driver first as it's the basic driver. And please note that when you install the integrated bluetooth, keep the bluetooth function open. However, good luck!:D

    my friend has a dv3-2155mx. i installed win7 64bit and used all the drivers including latest BIOS and QuickLaunch drivers from the HP support page for the unit.

    everything is in order except the brightness controls (keyboard + Win7 controls) are not working. anybody experienced the same problem?

    will using the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (HD) driver here solve our problem? of course, i will also try when i get my hands on the laptop again.

    [edit] also:

    i don't think i installed something like "Intel Chipset Device Software" before, will there be a problem if I install it after all the other drivers are already installed or is it better to re-install the other drivers after again.
