Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your particular model, Compaq Presario 12XL300, does not have a built-in Ethrnet port. You may want to explore the possibility of purchasing and installing a compatible PCMCIA card that has an Ehternet port such as this one.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Your laptop should have wireless and the best way to check is on either the front/left/right side of the laptop their is a switch that says wireless flick it to the side that says on... If you don't their should be a name above each of the inputs so look for the one that says something like internet/Ethernet or just plug into the ones that fit it and see if you get connected.

Can I purchase a wireless card to install into my Compaq Presario 5WV280 5000 series. I bought it in 2000, and it runs Windows Me. I'm pulling it out of storage for my 5 year old to use. It has...


Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

Does compaq presario come with web cam installed if so how do i get to it and will it work with phone jack at same time


Some of these laptops have a built in webcam however it was an option so you may or may not have it. If you do have it then you will have a small round lens at the middle top of the monitor. If you see that then it should be pre-installed and in your programs list should be some software for it. If not then you will need and external webcam which you can but for fairly cheap at most computer stores. As far as it working with the phone jack i am not sure what you are asking. If youre asking if it will work over the internet while connected via dial up then most likely no. The amount of data needed for a webcam is more then dial up internet can handle. It will however work with a high speed connection to the internet.

Kicks off dial-up after 5 minutes-dial-up shows still connected compaq presario sr111onx


This is normal. All users of dial up get kicked off randomly to make room on the service providers servers for other users to log on. In addition to it's extremely slow speed, this is the downside to dial up. I would suggest switching to DSL or Cable. It's a constant 'On' connection you cannot get kicked off of.

How do I get internet on my laptop from my pc not using a cable?


what you would need to get is a wirless router. If you have high speed internet then you can plug the internet modem into the wireless router and then plug your main pc into the router via an ethernet cable and then set up your laptop to pick up the signal wirelessly. If you have dial up internet then you would still need a wireless router but it is a little more complicated. You could hook up the router to your main pc and then set up internet connection sharing so that way your laptop could pick it up wirelessly. hopefully this helps.

for dial up simply a modem .... on laptops if you do not have a builtin modem you can purchase a pc-card modem that goes into your pcmcia slot ... for highspeed either a ethernet (same option as modem) but almost all modern laptops have a built in ethernet ... or usb ... also I highly recommend a router if you are going highspeed ... even if you only have one computer ... a router will protect your system because it provides a NAT firewall. If you go with a router make sure to set up the internet connection on the router do not tunnel through the router with a PPPoE connection
