Answers :

The card is manufactured by Broadcom, and the Broadcom bcmwl5.sys driver will make it work. Hewlett-Packard used this card in their notebook computers. Here is a link to the installation program. Windows will warn that this is not the right driver. If you bypass the warning, you can install the driver and make the card work.
