Check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)

if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,

Can the sr1123 wm desktop go wireless...what hardware do i need


@jlingenfelte

Since this desktop PC doesn't have a built-in wireless card installed, you have two options to get this computer connected wirelessly.

Option 1:
Install a PCI Wireless Adapter (example here)

Option 2:
Install a USB Wireless Adapter (example here)

Either options will work fine. Good luck.

Take a look at these as a good example of what you need.
Almost any one of thse will help you out. You need to decide on an internal card, installed in the case or an external USB device, some of which look like a flash drive.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

depends are you wireless or wired?if wired chech your router make sure the connection is good,bypass if necessary plug directly to the computer if that works you are ok you might have a bad router.If wireless you might want to do the same thing if that works you may have to reset the wireless router and reconfigure(wireless routers are reset by a button on the backside between the ports).
Good luck

Your compaq wireless receiver may not be correctly configured. It is best to contact the hardware manufacturer and ISPs refuse to assist with the many variables in wireless connection problems.

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.

I have a HP Compaq NC6000 laptop. Cannot get the 2200 BG wireless card to detect a wireless network even though one is available. It says it is installed and working properly. Any suggestions?


These are very flaky wireless adapters make sure you have the hp 2200 bg wireless drivers setup correctly.

They will appear as working correctly in device manager but do have connectivity problems.

Also make sure that wireless zero config service is started.

Another method would be to connect and setup through Intel proset utility
