Internet Connection Issues - Compaq CQ60.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60. It is stating it is connected to the internet by the device in the Network Sharing Center but the status is "Currently Connected to:" Identifying...(Village Inn) - No internet access. It will not work on my T-Mobile Aircard either, even though it is showing it is connected. Was reading to reinstall the wireless connector, but how can I re-install if I can't get it to install because I have to be internet to get it to re-install.

Hi.

First of all go the modem, wireless router or both and turn them off at the source (plug socket) and wait two minutes, while you are waiting go to the laptop and restart it, go back to the modem/router ad turn them/it back on. See if you can connect to the internet when the laptop fully boots up.

Let me know how you get on.

Good luck!

SOURCE: cannot connect to open wireless network Invalid IP Address

Either the network requires you to manually configure your ip settings(unusual but not unheard of) or your wireless adapter is not set to get settings from DHCP. Check to verify that your wireless adapter is set for DHCP and if this is correct then you'll need to contact the administrator for the wireless AP and haver them check their settings.

SOURCE: Cant access internet through wireless network.

if it flashes orange it is trying to connect and detect the internet, if you are connected to your wireless router but no internet check the security keys on the router and the laptop if they are the same, I guess you get the error limited connectivity, and if possible check for programs that could cause your wireless to not get the internet but get connected to the router, check for network magic uninstall the program from your system restart the computer try connecting again.

worst case that can happen is you can try uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling it if the wireless devices gets an error during installation of the driver then you will need to replace your wireless card in your laptop, orange flashing in router meaning it does not detect internet from the modem ^_^

Why when I type an address in Google won't it work


This sounds like a problem with your internet connection, not Google itself. If you search for the address on https://www.google.com/maps you should be able to find more accurate results.
I hope this helps!

My compaq cq60 connect to the wireless but won't connect to the internet


Have you tried restarting your broadband modem/router? As although your laptop is connecting to your broadband modem/router perhaps your modem/router is not connecting to the outside world. Once you have restarted your router, if you are still having problems, login to your router and check it's connection status. If it says anything other than "connected"/"ok"/"healthy", something along those lines, I would contact your ISP and check the status of your line. At this stage, if they confirm your line is working I would check the laptop for viruses/malware.

My compaq presario cq60 wont connect to my wireless router but other devices in my home have connected fine


Hi,
Check if the router has any restrictions, if not, try uninstalling any wireless program on the compaq and using the windows connection.
Be sure you are selecting the right encryption.
Kind regards

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 and a Netgear WNR2000. They'll connect through an ethernet cable but not using wireless. The router is working fine with other devices.


check the connections for the wireless card and make sure they're both attached, you can see where to look here
http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-motherboard-from-compaq-presario-cq50-cq60-cq70-laptop/

if connected make sure not a firewall issue. Try removing all wireless profiles stored in your computer and re-connect to your home wireless network, make sure that you have the correct encryption needed if your wireless is secured.
Or... Click on Start select Control Panel. Select Network and Internet option and then click the Network and Sharing Center. In the tasks on the left click Manage Wireless Networks. Click your network name in the list, then right-click and select Remove Network. This will clear out the profile. Then go back to the Network and Sharing Center and click Connect to a network and reconnect to your network.
might actually be better to start with last one first but I have one too and wireless comes undone easy enough.
hope this helps

I cannot get my wireless connection to work for my Compaq Presario CQ60 Notebook PC since my computer crashed. I have Cricket Broadband as the wireless connection


Make sure you perform a virus and malware check on your system to see if that was the cause of the crash. There are times when malware will change your internet settings to not allow you internet access. Follow the guide below to make sure your settings are correct. If they are, you may have to look at the router and not the laptop.

Bring up your internet browser look to the right and click on the “Tools” drop down menu. Scroll down to the bottom and click on “Internet Options”.
Now click on the “Connections” tab. At the bottom of the page, click on the “LAN settings” button.
Make sure the box for “Automatically detect settings is checked. Now, Un-check all other boxes, Especially the box that states to use a “proxy server for your LAN” at the bottom. Click OK and OK.

Reboot the machine and try to connect to the internet, you should be able to. I have to also add that in some cases if you have “Selective Startup” selected through “MSCONFIG”….it may be beneficial to change that to “Normal Startup” until you get the other settings configured.

Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
