Wireless Internet for compaq Presario

I recently had my computer rebooted. I can connect to dial up. But when I try to use my wireless it will not work. I am in the same room with the router and I know it works cause another laptop has connected on it. When I slide my button over to turn it on, it stays orange. I have a compaq presario f500. i have restarted my laptop with my button on the on position and it still does not work. Please help

My presario x1000 is having connection issues


Go to device manager and go to network connections. uninstall the wireless device, keep the drivers and then reboot. When the computer reboots it will detect the hardware which is your wireless adapter and install it along with the appropriate driver. If it asks to search windows update, allow it. reboot and see if you can get on the internet. If you can't send me a message through this site and we will try something else.

Wireless internet on compaq presario 6425 tu


Do you know for sure there is a wireless connection in the area you trying to connect, Wireless internet isn't accessible every were and when it is available it could be protected by a security pass phrase. The only way to really get full use out of your wireless internet is to go to a company that sells the wireless internet cards

Wireless MODEM for Internet connection compatibility with Laptop


Compaq/HP laptops that have a builtin wireless adapter have a wireless transmitter symbol near the bottom edge of the LCD screen.
If you don't have a wireless adapter you need either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless adapter. My choice would be a PCMCIA type because it frees up a USB port for other devices.

Won't stay connected to internet


that might take an uninstall and reinstall of either the ethernet drivers, or the operating system. I haven't heard that, but I have had machines that aren't as reliable in the wireless as they could be. it's possible that something in the workings of it has gone haywire, but it sounds like an OS issue.

Back up everything you want to keep and reinstall the OS if possible.

Highspeed internet connect vs dial up


Your laptop should have wireless and the best way to check is on either the front/left/right side of the laptop their is a switch that says wireless flick it to the side that says on... If you don't their should be a name above each of the inputs so look for the one that says something like internet/Ethernet or just plug into the ones that fit it and see if you get connected.
