:Intel Proset/ wireless software was unable to detect a supported wireless adapter. please install a supported adapter."

Pls. help.

Thanks,

Dear Thirupathi,

I believe your Wireless device is not Intel Proset/Wireless. It should be BroadCom. Please try the driver at the given link
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32001-32500/sp32156.exe
Let us know what happens.
