One of the features that makes laptop computers desirable is
their ability to connect to Wi-Fi networks, thus allowing people who are on the
go to be able to check email, browse the web or update social networking status
any time they are in a Wi-Fi hot spot.
Fortunately, enabling Wi-Fi on a laptop is simple to do.
Only basic Internet and computer expertise is needed to
connect your laptop to a wireless network.
Click on the "Start" menu on the bottom left-hand side of your
Then select "Control Panel."
When the "Control Panel" window opens, choose "Network
Click on the "Connect to a Network" link that is found underneath the

A list of available Wi-Fi networks will appear in the
Click on the Wi-Fi network you want to enable on your computer.

1. Before you conect to the Wi-Fi, make sure that your computer has installed drivers for Wi-Fi. 2. Make sure that Wireless is already open or st-up. 3. Look for the Wi-Fi spot area or zone, if there's no Wi-Fi access on that area you may not connect to Wi-Fi.
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....
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.)
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.
