Re: Where is wireless connection switch on Compaq...
Well if u have the same exact one as myself.
The wireless button is on the front right near the corner. above it and on the corner is the wireless symbol. If its working it should be lit blue. push it and see if it lights up blue for a few seconds. You should get a wireless connection confirmation on the screen.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

n the right bottom corner you would find an icon for WiFi network. Right click on it and select "Connect to a Network". If that doen Not work then select "Diagnose and Repair".You can do the same thing from Start->Connect to. Here select the Wireless LAN. And do as before.
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
If you're running a wireless network, make sure all computers on the network use the same network name, for instance "My network" Home Network etc. one can't say "MS HOME" and the computer you're using say "My Network"
It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.
If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.
There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 wireless button and volume-down button where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds. * Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established. OR * Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.
You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!
If your volume buttons don't work either this should help. Place your laptop on a table and press down on the lower right of the computer(under the arrows near the microphone and headphone symbol) or clamp down on the battery compartment (center). The blue light on the corner should illuminate, if it's off press the network button while putting pressure(the indented one on the right front edge) you shoud hear a double ping sound. I put a thick felt pad between the battery and the computer andnow everthing works. I know it sounds really STUPID but it works.
if ur sure that that it is the fn and f2 that u have to press simultaneously to turn on wireless capabilty. Make sure u press it long enough Right click on wireless network connection item in ur system bar and goto view available wireless connection and check what message is displayed there If it still says that " No wireless network were found , make sure wireless switch is on " Contact COMPAQ
