I have a hx2750 running WM2003se and rom 1.10 - I don't jump into new os's easily...
I've run into the old 'wifi drivers not present for card' issue.  Again.

This time I think it's fatal. 

Usually, a soft reset fixes the issue.  Now a hard reset and install of a previous (stable) backup still returns the issue - no wifi whatsoever.

There are no drivers or fixes on HPs website & I wonder if anyone can suggest a fix.

Cheers for your reply - I've only now done what you recommend....  Bit tardy, eh?

Unfortunately, a hard reset hasn't fixed the problem.  My ipaq is still asking for drivers.

The onset of this issue was pretty sudden (well, other than the ongoing 2003se, occasional request for drivers that a soft reset fixed), but on this occasion it was over a 5 minute period - surfing the wireless wave, turned off the device & when I switched it back on a few minutes later, nothing but the driver request....

There are no software or hardware conflicts that I can find - no new installs for months. 

Any other thoughts?  Would the drivers be anywhere else?

Cheers, Evan

Yeah, I fear as much...

I may just have to look at upgrade options.

Even, *shock, horror* a software upgrade to wm5...

Cheers for the help
