Default wireless adapter not showing up

Hey guys, thanks for reading.
First off, i reinstalled windows xp home on my hp dv6045nr.

I installed all the necessary drivers, but when i tried to installed my wireless internet driver, a wireless network connection didn't pop up. There is a switch in the front of my laptop that says wireless, and i switched it back and forth a couple times to see if that would do anything, but it didnt. If i could get some help, that would be great.

Specs if ya need them

The specs are:
Product DV6000 or Pavillion DV6045NR
HP Model Number EZ476UA #ABA
Turion X2 TL-56 Dual 1.8Ghz Processor
Nvidia 410/430 chipset
Nvidia Geforce Go 7200 64MB (256MB TC) video card, 15.4" widescreen
120GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive
Broadcom 802.11G with no Bluetooth fitted ex-factory
LightScribe DVD-RAM Burner model HL-DT-ST GSA4084N
Integrated Webcam

56k modem

Thanks again everyone.
