    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.

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
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a rating of 4.It will help me
as well. Thank you
