There are many reasons why wireless doesn’t work but lets look at it step by step

How it works is that there’s a card inside your laptop which detects networks “wireless only” that are in your house and near you like neighbours.

The most common mistake is “the button” there is bound to be a button either
On the side, the rear, the front of the laptop or even near the keyboard it usually has
A dot with signal lines that button switch on and off the wireless device so make sure its on and then wait 10 second for the signal to appear.

There is no button? Right then there’s a keyboard shortcut to switch it on and off
You must first press and hold the “fn” button or the function button then find the wireless key which is either “f8” or “f4” it varies from model to another but it always has the wireless logo on it and it is always one of the f keys.

Didn’t help? It could be you’re running multiple utilities to run your wireless, you either have to use windows utility which is normaly in your task bar but if that’s not working then another utility is using it, so find in your programs list “wireless utility” or “belkin utility” which usually does the same.

Didn’t help? Its getting more serious, makesure your driver is installed for the wireless, if you go to the device manager and then to the network area and there makesure your wireless drvice is enabled “no red cross on it” or else if you cant find a wireless device in there then it means your wireless card is faulty and need an expert looking at it.

It is good practice to re-install the wireless driver to fix most issues.

My Kindle is not picking up the wi fi signal what code do I need to put into it??


Try this:
  • Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  • Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  • Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks.
  • Use the 5-way controller to navigate down to "Enter other Wi-Fi network" and press to select.
  • Enter the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add.
  • Enter the password (if required). Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard. You can continue to use the keyboard while the Symbol menu is displayed.
  • Choose "submit." Kindle connects to the new Wi-Fi network.

  • If this doesn't work feel free to reply and I will try find another method. However, if it does please rate me. Thank you.

    MY SONNY ERICSSON X8 WHY I CAN'T GET THRU IN WIFI


    To connect to a WLAN via Wi-Fi™:
    1. From the Home screen, find and tap Settings.
    2. Tap Wireless controls > Wi-Fi settings.
    3. Mark the Wi-Fi checkbox. Available Wi-Fi™ networks are displayed in a list under Wi-Fi networks. The available networks may be open or secured. This is indicated by the icon next to the network name.
    4. Tap a Wi-Fi™ network to connect to it. If you are trying to connect to a secured Wi-Fi™ network, you are asked to enter the security key for that Wi-Fi™ network before you can connect to it. The Wi-Fi™ connection is displayed in the status bar once you are connected.
    Useful tip:
    • The next time you connect to a Wi-Fi™ network, the phone will remember the security key.
    • To enable Wi-Fi™ network notification of open networks, mark the Network notification checkbox.
    • To connect to another Wi-Fi™ network, just tap another Wi-Fi™ network in the Wi-Fi networks list.
    • To scan for Wi-Fi™ networks manually, press the Menu key and tap Scan. The phone scans for Wi-Fi™ networks and displays them in the Wi-Fi networks section.

    You can also try updating your softwares by going to the sites below;

    Compaq c700 wi fi not working i tried pressing the wifi button but still the LED stil red.


    Have you checked that the wireless network connection is not disabled in "control panel" "network connections". Also check Device Manager and make sure that the wireless device is listed under network adapters. Have you turned off the wireless device in the bios? If you need help with any of these let me know. I will also need to know which operating system you are using i.e. XP or Vista

    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

    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.
