Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Can't establish wireless connection

My daughter got a used Compaq presario 700 laptop. She needs a wireless connection with my computer.
I bought a Netgear router and attempted to install on my desktop computer. I went through the process at least 25 times. Using not only the software that came with it, but I also went to You tube, AND Comcast (my isp) using their instructions.
Honestly, this really doesn't look like rocket science to me! But it won't connect. Could there be a problem with my daughter laptop?
thanks.
Pam

Can't connect my compaq to TalkTalk wifi


Hello,

Have you tried using a different gadget or computer that has the ability to connect to the internet wirelessly? If all connect without any problem, then you just need to update the device driver of your compaq. You can either update the drivers manually or you can do it automatically (recommended) so that you can get the correct drivers. You can use RadarSync to make it automated.

By the way, if all other gadgets and computers do not connect wirelessly then contact talk talk.

I hope this helps!

I was able to connect to my HP Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop to my WiFi Network using NetGear. When I reconfigured the network I could connect to all other network like Dell Lptop , Nokia Smart Phone and HP...


Hi!

Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)

If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA.
Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter.
If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.


Hope it helped,

Bogdan

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.

My presario f700 could not establish wireless connection.


Go to the device manager (Right-Click My Computer, Properties-Device Manager), then Go to Network Adapters and Click on it, see if the Wireless Adapter is there. if it is, right click on it and select uninstall, then after this, On the Device Manager Page Menu on top of the page, click on Action, select Scan For Hardware changes, and let your system re-install it. ...but if it is not in the device manager, go to your system set-up (By restarting your system)...and make sure that the Wireless Device is Enabled under Peripheral Devices.

Wireless connections


Definitely a waste of time and money. Bluetooth is REALLY slow, so you might as well go and buy a wireless card if your computer isn't already equipped with one.
