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,

My computer wont puck up any wireless connections it doesnt even show the adapter anymore i don't know what happened can anyone help??


Could be an error with the wireless assistant or maybe a corrupt wifi driver. The following link is for the HP wireless assistant, try downloading and installing it:

This is the link for HP support where you can try downloading a new wifi driver. You will need to know what wifi adapter is installed to get the correct driver:

I purchased a SBG901 and have connected 2 MAC pc's wireless - 1 HP printer and 1 Compag laptop, I have one more pc which is running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv5 and visited the HP website to update


It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

I was able to connect to my HP Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop to my WiFi Network using NetGear. When I reconfigured the network I could connect to all other network like Dell Lptop , Nokia Smart Phone and HP...


Hi!

Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)

If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA.
Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter.
If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.


Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Compac presario cq56-115dx hp wireless assistant does not work


You don't need HP wireless assistant. You can remove it and enable windows zero wireless configuration to manage your wireless signal. Easier, and less complicated. Message me back to get instructions.

I would like to know the wireless drivers that are compatible with my laptop pc hp compaq nx6310. I installed windows 7 ultimate but my laptop cannot access the wifi hot spot.please help me


HP/Compaq ONLY provides drivers for Windows 2000, Win XP, and Win Vista for this model of laptop. It is based on OLD hardware and they are NOT going to write any Win7 drivers for it. If you want to use the wireless features, you can TRY to make the Vista wireless drivers work with it, but I don't think you'll have much success. Of course, you can always install Win2k, WinXP, or WinVista again...

Have you installed the drivers for your connections (modem, Ethernet and wireless) ?

Wireless stopped working on my HP Compaq Presario laptop v6000


Hi there!

There should be another adapter available. The two you mentioned are not your primary wireless connection.

The device will usually have 802.11g/a/b or something similar in it's name. It might also say Intel PRO/Wireless.

I assume you are uninstalling it because it is malfunctioning. The task you are performing can sometimes fix whatever the problem might be, but in the case that it doesn't, I would recommend downloading the most recent driver for the wireless adapter

Driver for XP
- 32 bit

Driver for Vista - 32 bit

I hope this helps! Feel free to reply if you need anymore information or if you have questions.
