Compaq presario--can't surf to the internet through wi fi

I can't surf to the internet with my laptop, I can connect through wi fi zone though. It's just that after I got connected, and ready to surf, when I enter the web address that I want to go to, there are error messages showing up on the screen.. like 'not a valid address', 'there was a problem connecting to the internet' and many other error messages. I suspect that it was after my laptop had a virus, I don't know, I had a feeling it got its virus after I install an updated norton antivirus, I wasn't aware at first, not after my officemates told me, that I need to remove the norton2007 I had initially when I bought the laptop together with the windows vista os. Just right after I install the software, my laptop hung, like it was all blacked out, and I can't make it turn off.. Then I removed the battery, put it back in, then suddenly I can't open it. I brought it to a friend, he did some f10, f12, or f8, I don't know and finally it opened, he just went to something that says hp total care and it opened. I can use my laptop again, but still i can't connect to the internet, and surf, so I can't update my anti virus at all.. And then eventually, I noticed that I can't open any files in cd/dvd.. It just says on the icon for dvd on my computer the size of the memory that the cd has, but every time I try to open the cd, it says blank cd. I can't even burn cd sometimes. Please help. Thanks. I bought it from Dubai by the way.

Bought a new comp woith windows 7, when i try to watch t.v. it keeps buffering, can u help me tyvm


First check to see that you have known good bandwidth on your internet connection. If this is slow, you will always run into a situation where your playback is running faster than your download rate and causing your streaming software to pause and buffer content before continuing.

I'm assuming you connect to the internet via wi-fi, try connecting to the internet through a cable & see if that helps.

Unfortunately the Presario CQ62-215DX does have problems with poor video streaming capabilities (frequent freezes) and poor wi-fi performance which is probably the cause of your buffering problem.

Hope this is of some help. ;)

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....

Cant enable wi-fi


You will need to check that the router is on first, then go to the internet settings on your computer, if the wi-fi doesnt show up try and SCAN so your computer will look for it. When it is found you will need to give it a password and then its ready to go

Wireless no longer works


1st Solution:
Check if the wi-fi card is properly installed under Device Manager. Go to Start then look for Control Panel on the right pane. Under Control Panel look for System and Maintenance and then click on Device Manager. Now under Device Manager look for Network Adapters and collapse or click the arrow next to it. Check if your wi-fi adapter is installed(10/100 or 10/1000 is your LAN adapter, wi-fi adapters usually indicates something like 802.11x(could be agn or g or b) or the word "wireless". If you don't see anything I mentioned above that means your computer is unable to detect any wi-fi adapters installed. Know if you found a wi-fi adapter but there is a yellow exclamation or question mark, all you have to do is re-install the drivers for your wi-fi adapter(you can download the drivers on the Compaq website for free.)

2nd Solution:
Check if the wi-fi is disabled or stopped, if you have a bulit in wi-fi adapter on your laptop they have a wi-fi switch on the side or near the function keys(F1, F2, F3 up to F12). Wi-fi button/switch will have a logo or marking of an antenna that has waves coming out of it and there is a LED light that will indicate if its on or off(for Comapaq laptops it's either a blue button at the front, near the function keys or at the front panel on the buttom edge.

If both fails then you may need to contact Compaq for further assistance.

Hope this will help you fixin the wi-fi problems on your laptop.
