    We still cannot connect to the wifi after receiving the message new message:

    there might be a problem with one or more of the network adapers on this computer.

    Then I try to connexct to oone of the wireless networks and it will not let me connect to our wireless network.

    The network works fine with our Dell PC and Dell laptop.

    I am able to see the WIFI network name. From our Cpmpaq laptop using Vista, it will not let me connect to our wifi network.

Thank u for the clarification..if it says "low signal strength" then u will have to reduce the distance between the laptop and the wireless router..also please ensure there are no big objects,walls etc between the two..u can get better signal strength by doing these..also other nearby wireless networks and cordless phones can hamper with signal..hope it helps!regards!

    few questions:

    have u installed the software for the D link and followed the instructions of configuring the network?

    is your internet working otherwise without the wifi?

    are you able to view your wifi network name on your system or for that matter any other nearby network?

    when you type 192.168.1.1 in the internet browser what do you see?

    my solution was for the "low signal strength" and not for the new comment that you posted today..hence your rating is quite harsh..

    hi!check the wireless network settings..some things like MAC filtering will not allow you to connect to the network even if visible..

You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: -

I need help with my compaq laptop i had to wipe the drive and reinstall windows xp and now i have none of the wireless card driversi mean i have none of the drivers that i can tell none for networking...


Did this laptop originally come with Vista installed, and you downgraded to XP?
No?
Did you install XP from a full Installation disk you bought?
The reason I ask this, is it shows Windows Vista as the original operating system.

I found, as you did that there is no LAN driver available from HP Support, except for Windows Vista. (Broadcom Wireless)

I suggest this:

Contact HP.
I would call them. Much nicer speaking to a real person, and faster than emailing them.

Here is the phone information page,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/contact/phone_assist.html#section1

(Product Name is Presario)
Phone number is 1-800-474-6836

I just called the above 1-800 number, to verify it was still a good working number, and to talk to tech support myself, about what is involved for you to obtain this disk, and if said disk was available for THIS laptop using the Windows XP operating system.
(Apologize for the run-on sentence)
(9:37PM, Thursday, Sept. 17)

[1.Get Tech Support
2.Notebook PC
3.Presario
Wait for tech support. Time I incurred? 3 minutes waiting time]

You'll have to call tech support yourself, so that you can give them THE serial number. At that time, the tech will verify whether drivers are available for LAN, for the Compaq Presario F572US laptop. Then a Restoration Disk will be offered as an option.

Tell them you need the Restoration Disk for your Compaq Presario F572US laptop, running Windows XP.

Tell them the Serial Number, (s/n in the white Service Tag), and the Operating System, (Windows XP)

(Sometimes you have to remind them of the operating system, to be sure there isn't mis-communication, and they send you a Restoration Disk for Vista)

The Restoration Disk is free. The Shipping and Handling is not. The prices are $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
(Including Tax)
They have an overnight option also.

I need wireless drivers for compaq presario vista


Here is the link for your wireless drivers. Just run the file and when Vista asks for permission just click on 'Allow'. You may have to restart before the wireless installation completes. If you need more help then post what wireless network or router you are trying to connect if you are using or if you are going to connect to a 'hot spot' like a Starbucks or hotel. Good luck, Steve
