I have a laptop dell with vista windows, i want to make it wireless , using my wireless router ,how do it using the model of birght house step bystep. thank you.


You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Then in vista make sure wireless lan driver installed then right clickc on wi fi icon and click on view available wi fi then you can connect it.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....

I have problem with the wi-fi network adapter.its just simply not detect wifi adapter in network adapters and my wi-fi is not working at all.i have installed drivers for wi-fi adapter many time evenif its...


If you know you installed the right driver and you know for sure that the device manager is showing no signs of the wireless card then the motherboard is probably bad.

To verify this, put another wireless card into the slot, if the system doesn't pick up on the 2nd card then that slot on the motherboard is bad meaning the motherboard would have to be replaced.

Tweak BIOS to install Windows XP


Shouldn't need any "tweaking". Not sure offhand on the c700, but manytimes the Compaq bios is limited (and I'm a Compaq user - servers, desktops & laptops). What is itexactly that you're trying to achieve? I replaced Vista on my F500 series first with XP and finally with Linux - no problems (other than initially finding drivers). Just make sure to download and build an XP driver disk beforehand and you won't have any problems.

Wi fi


Could you make sure that wifi switch is turned on.

This will be physicall button on the laptop of function keys combination that enables wifi.


If wifi switch is on you should be able to see wifi networks in range. IF you see networks but can not connect this will be network security issue. MAke sure that wireless network router is properly setup and security key you enter is correct

Cant enable wi-fi


You will need to check that the router is on first, then go to the internet settings on your computer, if the wi-fi doesnt show up try and SCAN so your computer will look for it. When it is found you will need to give it a password and then its ready to go

Not being able to connect to Internet still


  1. Check the wireless adapter of your laptop. To do that, go to control panel then go click on System then go to Device manager.
  2. On Device Manager window, look for Network adapter. Check all the Network adapters installed to your laptop.
  3. Look for the wireless adapter installed in your laptop. Once you found it, right click on it and then click properties.
  4. Under the general tab, look for Device status.
  5. Make sure that the wi-fi button of your laptop is enabled.
Hope this helps!

Drivers for Wi-Fi (drivers for Ethernet Controller and Modem Device on high definition audio bus)


Not much offered at Compaq's driver site for XP. For the modem driver, try the link below, it says it's for Vista, but it should work. If it doesn't then you will need the make and model of the modem, then go to the manufacturer's site or driverguide.com for the drivers, and the same for the wireless, make and model, manufacturer's site or driver guide. To be honest with you, modems are just about obsolete, unless you have dial up at home, you'll probably never use it.
