Presario M2000 wireless turns off (light and all) randomly
After turning my wireless button on, it shuts off randomly. Sometimes it is days before I can get it to stay on and connect. The wired connection works fine. Any suggestions as to what I can do to get my wireless working would be much appreciated!

If there is no power going to the laptop then disconnect battery and hold the reset button in for 30 seconds, then try it again. Sometimes the memory can be damaged which can cause the laptop not to boot..?
While logged into the router, Turn on "broadcast ssid" or tell your computer exactly what the SSID is.
One form of security is to set the router not to tell other computers in wifi range what the ssid is.
Here is all I know about Compaq Presario wireless switches. Sorry, but w/o a model I can't be more specific. Compaq Presario, Model not specified - Button on the Back C304NR - Button on upper right above keyboard deck, Blue is enabled CQ Series - Button above the keyboard (antenna icon on button) next to power. ** CQ50-107NR (Conflicting reports on this model show: Button above keyboard (antenna icon on button) next to power or lighted button below space bar that turns the touch pad on/off. M2000 - Button above the keyboard (antenna icon on button)
This does appear to have wireless capabilities.
there should be a small button to the left of the screen latch which you press to turn wireless on/off when on there should be a blue light that comes on.
if you wish to use wireless to access your broadband you will need to have a wireless router / ADSL modem (depending on your supplier)
you then configure the settings on the router to access the internet, then you configure the laptop to connect to the router. (there shoudl be instructions on how to do this with the router
I hope this helps
