There is a "wireless on/off" button above the keyboard which may have been accidentally switched off. Also be sure the wireless connection hasn't been disabled in Windows or in the computer's BIOS settings. These are the most common problems. It's also possible there has been failure of the integrated wireless circuitry. If this is the case (all settings are correct, no errors from Windows Device Manager, etc.), you might want to go with a USB wireless adapter as a replacement.

    What part of "use a USB wireless adapter" didn't you understand? Get one at Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, K-Mart, from any of hundreds of web vendors, plug it in and you'll have your wireless link back if you can't make the laptop's one work.

Just bought this laptop - cannot get the Wireless

If wireless card is listed in device manager under network adapters-that means you dont have to install it. If you running on vista, go to control panel and find ssomething like wireless contol manager or wireless assistant and see if its not disabled there. may also be disabled in bios settings. on windows xp-check if windows has possibility to manage wireless networks or its blocked by third party software. for example i use bt voyager wireless card and its managed by bt software. built in cards are likely managed by windows. type services.msc in run box and see if wireless zero configuration service is enabled.

Compaq nc6000 laptop wireless connection

Wireless connection? If so, make sure the wireless device is enabled on the newer one. If it's a red light, the wireless device may be faulty. If so, just get an external USB wireless device and use that. Check to see that the same lights are on with both PCs.
