I think you need to specify the gateway address in your new laptop. For that you have to know the gateway address ( i,e. the IP address of your boardband router/ adsl modem.).

First, go to your old laptop, right click on My Network Places, Right click on the wireless lan connection and select properties. Click on Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click properties.
Take a note of the Default gateway.
Now come to your new laptop, use the procedure mentioned above to open the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Properties box. Type in the Default gateway address which you have noted earlier. Click ok twice. Now see if you can access the internet. If you can't then let me know the IP address configuration of both your old and new laptops.

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.

Solution:

i) Click on  Start button ---->Select option Control Panel------>Select Network Connections----->

   a new window appears showing the "internet connections icon " Such as:

   Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3 and since you are not connected it will show this icon as:

eg1:   Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3
       Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled
       VIA compatible Fast Ethernet   

   in this case u can download VIA network drivers....from internet..


       or 

  eg2:  Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3
          Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled
          Realtek RTL8139 Family Fast Ethernet NIC

   in this u can download "Realtek RTL8139" network  drivers.... from internet(which is showing model    no: RTL8139 through google search engine )


                                                          (OR)


ii) Click Start button ---->Select RUN option ----> type in the text box    devmgmt.msc  --->Select Network Adapters....

but this will show wheter ur network adapter or NIC is VIA or Realtek or......but does show the correct Model NO: of VIA or Realtek....

so i would suggest to follow the step (i)



Thanking you

it will as long as the modem/router is connected to a phone line, instead of the pc, the only cable connected to the pc should be a ethernet cable; or you have the pc networking set that it connects via another pc instead of through a gateway, re run the wireless network wizard.

You need to go into your router settings via a web browser, possibly http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 your manual will confirm which address is correct.
If you have forgotten your passphrase you will need to set another one and then change all the computers which connect to it so they all have the same passphrase.
