Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
My wireless card or the chip is not wokeing
Check the device manager (right click on my computer> go to properties> click hardware> click device manager) and look for any yellow "?" or "!" marks on the icons, if none are found, make sure that the laptops "Wifi switch" is enabled.
Many people do not know that their laptop has a wifi switch that can turn the antenna on and off and make it appear as if the wireless adapter is not working.
Sometimes this switch is on the side of the laptop somewhere sometimes it is whats called a "soft switch" where you press FN and one of the number keys at the same time, the key usually has a little radio wave icon on it somewhere. - This is most likely the cause of your problem.
