Re: Broadcom - WLAN gone
Hi there,

Try rolling back on the driver, do a system restore or restore from the
backup you hopefully made.

Only update the drivers if your hardware is not working well or an
application needs the update to work.

If it ain't broke: do not try to" FIX" it.

Only take drivers for Microsoft Hardware from Windows Update, other drivers
should be ontained from the manufacturer, in this case Broadcom.

Best regards,
Michel Denie
