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.

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

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

please note that there are 3 possible wireless network cards in this laptop, I sugest you download all, and try each in the following order
Intel

Atheros
remember to uninstall each driver if it is not correct
If you are runing XP, you will need to try and locate the relevant 3 XP drivers from the 3 manufactures sites EG: Intel

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.
