i) on the bottom-right-coner of computer desktop(system tray) you will computer like(double)icon showing the connectivity to internet, see whether it is showing a red corss(X) symbol on it if it is so then there is no internet connectivity,  other wise you will see a movement or graphic on the icon, if it is so then there is internet connectivity.

ii) if there is red corss(X) symbol on it try remove the internet connection(wire) and replace it and if you use an internet service provider which require id, password try to enter them after installing sofware provided by internet service provider.

If you got to START; TYPE CMD; when the black screen opens type: ping Yahoo.com Does it connect? If so, you have a browser problem. If not, you are not on the internet.

I have compaq c700 laptop, i connect usb network modem ,only i am able to connect voip only, but when i open the browser(internet explore,chrome etc) page it was not connected


Im not sure what kinda modem you have ..but I think if you connect it via usb you need to install the driver for it ...so ..if you have a driver cd ..run it and make it be seen by the computer ..Usually the modem can run without driver but only on the network port in the network card ..This explains why the phone works and not the internet connection itself..Either use it in the Lan card port ..and make the settings you need for the network ...by log into it using it's IP address in the browser ...or install the driver and try to connect it by usb ..

My compaq presario 700 notebook cannot connect to internet thru neither cable nor wireless. It happened overnight. How I can check and solve this issue? Please help~~~


First of all, make sure your internet service is working. Then check your Network Connections in the Control Panel. Next could be your modem or wireless card is bad. Since I don't know if your main computer has internet, etc., I can't say anymore than that. If you take it into Best Buy, they might be able to replace the wireless care with a good one, to check the card. Good luck.

Internet


Maybe your wireless is turned off. You should have a button to turn it on on your front side or somewhere on top of the keyboard.

I am using a Compaq Presario V3000 laptop - 2yrs old. Recently my laptop speed has been too slow. IE is not connecting to any website. However internet is connected i.e. Yahoo & Skype are working


Please run system restore to factory default but backup your documents first.

Try another browser like Opera or Firefox.

Good luck.
