Compaq presario v2000 wireless card not showing up in device manager

In Device Manager click the tiny arrow beside Network Adapters. This where the wireless card should be listed.
Next, locate the row of small icons just below the View tab at the top of Device Manager window.. Click the icon on the right "Scan for Hardware Changes".
Check again under Network Adapters to see if the wireless card is listed.
Or, check for any yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager list. An item might be named Unknown Device. Double-click it and select Update Driver.

Cant connect to wireles network . will not find network. not sure if equipprd with wireless adaptor

I don't think it has a wireless adapter as standard, you can check by doing this:

Right click on My Computer and chose Properties.
Click on Hardware and then Device Manager. This lists all the Hardware in your PC.
Next double click on Network Adapters.
If there is a wireless card listed here then you will be be able to connect to a wireless network. If not then you'll have to purchase one from a PC shop.

Has An Acer Travelmate 243LC laptop got a build-in Wireless?

The link below will take you to a page on the Acer Web site that shows the specs for this laptop. According to the specs, this laptop does not come with onboard wireless (if this feature were part of the system, it would be listed in the specs). Also, you can check Device Manager to see if you have a Wireless Adapter listed under Network Adapters. If you don't see any type of Wireless adapter listed then you'll definitely know that your laptop doesn't have it built in.

To access Device Manager:
Right-click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Manage
In the left navigation pane, click Device Manager.
In the larger window, scroll down the list to Network Adapters.
Expand the Network Adapters tree to see the installed adapters.

However, the specs do show that this laptop has 2 PC Card slots. These slots give you at least a couple of options for connecting to the Internet. You can buy an Air Card that is installed in one of the PC Card slots when you want to use it to access the Internet. My company used to provide Air Cards for laptop users through AT&T. The advantage is that you have an uninterrupted connection to the Internet no matter your location.

You can also buy a WiFi card that fits into a PC Card slot. This card will be your Wireless NIC (adapter) providing you with the means to set up connections to wireless networks. Linksys is a pretty good brand and fairly easy to install and support. After installation and configuration, you can pop the card in your PC Card slot anytime you want to connect to a Wireless network then remove it when it's no longer needed.

I hope this helps you connect wirelessly using your laptop. Please rate this solution and thanks for using Fixya.

Trying to hook up internet


Please check whether the Wireles s button is on and there are any yellow marks in the device manager.

Click start and select Run. In the Run box type devgmgmt.msc and press enter. This will open device manager. Then click on + sign next to network adapters and check whether the wireless adapter listed and any yellow marks beside it.

If there is no yellow marks beside the wireless adapter and it is listed in the device manager. Then try to install Wireless drivers and reconfigure wireless network.

How to repair the wireles switch from a hp pv 9000 notebook

Check to see if the wireless adapter has been disabled in the device manager. If it has been turned off there it will stay disabled no matter what you do with the switch.

Best way to get there is by:
  1. Right-click on my computer and select Manage
  2. Select Device Manager on the left hand panel
  3. Select the Network Adapters category on the right panel
  4. Look for your wireless adapter in the list. If it is disabled the right-click and enable.
    If you don't have a wireless card listed then you have a bigger issue and will need to get that repaired.
