Question about Compaq Presario R3000Z Notebook
I am not sure if this can happen, but is my internal wireless card broken? I have been using wireless internet for at least the past month, everyday for several hours. I have left my little wireless button on. However, yesterday, I tried to go online and my wireless connection didn't recognize any connections. My ethernet cord is working fine (that's how I'm online writing this). The only thing I can think of that is different is that I downloaded the Windows Live Updates, I think.
As shaky120 says go to my computer, right click>properties>device manager>hardware and look down the list for wireless adapters and click on the line and see if there is an exclamation mark or a red cross on it. Exclamation mark tends to mean there is no driver installed and a red cross means it has been dissabled. The other problem maybe that your router is not assigning your network an ip address, so check the properties of your network card and in the tcp/ip line, click properties and see if obtain ip address automatically is checked. If you do see your network card but it still does not work, right click on it and delete, restart pc and windows will find it again and re install the drivers.

Only thing i can think of is, check the switch on the side of the laptop is on for the wireless or FN + F2 to make sure its on, then into control panel and networks if no wireless adapter there then looks like its broken All the best John
