1. were you ever able to do it before?
2. first.. check your wireless adapter is on and you have a light showing you adapter is on (blue or green).. on some compaq laptops if you get an amber light and the switch is on the on position the wireless adapter may be faulty and your motherboard may have to be replaced.
3. check also you are within range of your access point (router).. usually on the system tray (where you clock is ) you will see icons showing you are within range or not (ex. a computer flasing a little blue light with some waves to right).
4. find if your computer detects your wireless adapter (go into start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab> device manager... and look under network adapters! if you see your wireless adapter make sure you don't have a ? or a ! sign next to it.. if you do you may need to update the driver or reinstall the driver of this device. check the cd that came with the adapter or using another computer download the setup file/driver from the hardware manufacturer of your device and using a flash drive move it to the system you're working on and install the appropiate driver for your operating system.
