Network cable wire too large to fit laptop connection

Hi, I have an old compaq presario which I loaned out and on return I can't seem to connect to the network cable as the end of the cable is too large to fit into the laptop - this opening accepts other telephone wires. Thanks.

    Hi Pablo, Thanks for the info. I have just discovered an Ethernet card and plugged into that is a wire that does accommodate the dsl cable wire. But inserting that into the laptop still does not connect to the Internet.



    Thanks for trying.

If your laptop is too old probably does not have a network card built in. In that case you need a PCMCIA network card and PCMCIA slot available in your computer.

You can get one here:

SATA 2.5 connectors different than current Presario R4000 laptop


It seems that your notebook does not have sata connection to Hard drive. Your harddrive is IDE connection. Sorry but you can't use SATA on this laptop.

Wireless internet on compaq presario 6425 tu


Do you know for sure there is a wireless connection in the area you trying to connect, Wireless internet isn't accessible every were and when it is available it could be protected by a security pass phrase. The only way to really get full use out of your wireless internet is to go to a company that sells the wireless internet cards

Can i use a usb adaptor on the c700


Your laptop should have a built in network card and 10baseT network port, if your laptop does not have a built in network card you can use either a PCMCIA network card or a USB network adapter. Your desktop computer may not have a network card, you will need to purchase a network card and install the drivers.
To connect the two computers together you only need a cross over cable. If you use a hub you can connect two or more computers together using standard 10baseT network cables.
