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.

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.

Wireless internet on compaq presario 6425 tu


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

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.
