    Can this computer see the wireless network? Was it able to connect at one time? Have you moved the PC at all?

    Also did you set up the wireless router?

Do you have a working wireless device in the computer? Can the computer see the wireless connection? Is the wireless connection encrypted? If the answer to all three of those questions is yes, then you need to get the encryption key from the access point. if question one is yes and question two is no, chances are the network connection broadcast name (or SSID) is hidden. You need to find that name and connect to it (SSIDs must be typed EXACTLY how its named--if its all caps, you have to type it all caps). Keep us posted.

Can I purchase a wireless card to install into my Compaq Presario 5WV280 5000 series. I bought it in 2000, and it runs Windows Me. I'm pulling it out of storage for my 5 year old to use. It has...


Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

Can I hoop up a wireless router to this computer


You can hook up any computer/laptop to a wireless router via LAN cable or by wireless connection.
For a wireless connection each computer/laptop needs a wireless card and the wireless card driver installed and the wireless card needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have a new Compaq Presario desktop and and I have a satellite connection on my old one and want to hook up a Linksys wireless router and need some help. I have looked at so many sites with ways to do it...


You need to provide the model number of your Lynksys first, but more importantly you'll also need a wireless adapter for your new Presario if one isn't already installed on it or you won't be able to wirelessly access the satellite internet network through your wireless router.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000


Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.

XP Drivers for compaq cq60


I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 211DX Here is the list of drivers i found. I hope it works on your CQ60 model
Audio driver: Download file: sp39540 from HP's website
Audio driver # 2: google this file: cx20561_hd_smart_audio221xp\XP32 or click here
For wireless card download : http://www.mediafire.com/?cfdzj3eaizt or search for AR5007_XP file
You may have to hold the wireless switch for a while before you can connect to the internet.
Installing the wifi card and utility and having it work is hard,but is possible: so don't give up.
Ethernet drivers: google: PCIE_Install_5702_0828

You may need to update XP , install dot.net framework 3.1 or higher, windows installer before trying t
he drivers. I had so much trouble finding the right drivers and if I am able to slipstream XP MCE i will post it on www.isohunt.com as a torrent for download to make it easy for those who need the drivers.

I hope this helps

Good luck to you
