    82577LM Gigabit Ethernet won't connect to WDS


      We have just purchased the HP Elitebook 8440p's with the 82577LM gigabit cards. The machines seem to PXE boot fine. The problem is when trying to connect to either our WDS server or Ghost server, the card will simply not get get an IP address. I have tried injecting all the drivers to date for this card, Win XP, Vista, Win7 both 32 and 64 bit versions and nothing seems to work. I have seen many with the same issue but no fixes. What I am doing for the time being is pulling the hdd from the 8440p and inserting it in an older 6510b to capture the image then putting it back into the 8440p to finish the setup. There has got to be something better. HP does not seem to have any answers yet, I was hoping someone on this board has found a fix for this. Thanks in advance.
