    I have the same problem with my Compaq Presario C700

    Investigation reveals that the card I have, an Atheros, is working OK, but there is a "whitelist" in the BIOS of my machine that this card does not appear on. This appears to be an attempt by Compaq to force you to use either Compaq parts or Compaq-approved parts.

    I have been told that one way round is to edit the whitelist in the BIOS, but this is a path fraught with danger for the end-user

Seems to be self-explanatory... The card is either not inserted properly, defective, or not compatible. Check that it is inserted completely and locked or screwed in the down position.

I may not be understanding what you are stating, so bear with me;

1) The Wireless Modem antenna wires are up in the Display Assembly,

http://www.mundocorp.com/shopexd.asp?id=1160

In otherwords they should already be there.

2) The 802.11 Mini PCI Card, is a Wireless Module.
It goes in the Mini PCI Compartment, under the Mini PCI Compartment Cover, located on the bottom of the laptop.

It's made by Broadcom,

(Gateway 6002672 part number)

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/NETWORK/Wireless/6002672/6002672mv.shtml

See at the Top right where it states Main, and has a white Side Arrow?
This terminal is where the Black wire (Lead) of the wireless antenna connects to.

The other terminal, AUX, is where the White wire connects to.

REMEMBER, remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery, before working on the laptop. Also follow Anti-Static Precautions.

I am currently using a wireless 'dongle' to connect to the internet but I feel that it would probably give me a more stable connection if I had a wireless card. Can anyone give me details of


Hi Lynda,
The best option for you would be to purchase a wireless PCI network card.
They are relatively inexpensive and should have a stronger signal over a longer distance than a wireless USB dongle.
Below is a typical wireless network card and it should be freely available from your local PC store

I have included a brief explanation for your convenience:

A PCI wireless adapter card connects to a desktop computer's PCI bus. Because the PCI bus is contained inside the computer, the unit must be opened and the wireless network adapter installed inside.
An example of a PCI wireless adapter card, the Linksys WMP54G is shown above. This unit is more than 8 inches (200 mm) long in order to accommodate the standard connection strip required to electrically join to the bus. The unit attaches and fits snugly inside the PCI, although the wireless adapter card antenna protrudes out the back of the computer

Best wishes,

This is the schematic for the board in your HP machine
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=bph07845&lc=en#N837

This is a very old board, there should be no wires to the motherboard for the LAN or wireless, as the LAN connection is built into the rear of the board, any wireless connection will be via a PCI card, which plugs directly into one PCI slot.

I think therefore that the inability to get onto the internet is not the fault of your son, but a problem with the router security. Try disabling windows firewall temporarily and see if that helps, if not, please repost and describe the problem in more detail, including the model and make of your router

I think you want your desktop computer to be able to "grab" an existing wireless Internet connection, right? In that case, what you need is not an internal modem, but a "PCI Wireless Adapter". It's just a typical card that goes inside the computer, but instead of ports, has an antenna. Check Newegg.com for "PCI Wireless Adapter", and you'll find several of them. TP-Link, Asus and Netgear are good options.

System don't Reboot


Assuming you have already installed the AGP driver for the motherboard, you will have to start the pc in safe mode (F8) on boot up, to start in VGA mode only and see if the graphics are ok. If it boots into VGA mode then the card itself is ok, but the card driver and agp motherboard driver, if not already; will need to be installed at this point because im assuming you were not able as you were getting the fault on screen.
