Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
There is not a lot of information to work with here. First of all, the computer is a desktop. Do you have a PCI or USB wireless card installed? You need a wireless network adapter in order to access your wireless.
Next, do you have a wireless router? If not, you need one to provide something for the wireless clients to connect to. If you do, you need to take note of the SSID, or wireless network name. This is the name that the Compaq desktop will be connecting to (with it's wireless network adapter.
In regards to the router, did you setup WEP or WPA wireless encryption? If so, Windows will ask for the key or passphrase to connect to your network and must be typed in identically to how it was setup in your router.
Something else to consider, if you do use WPA for encryption, some older wireless cards do NOT support it and if you insist on using encryption, use WEP.
Hope this helps!
