Question about Compaq Presario CQ60-220US PC Laptop

1 Answer

Wireless internet connection

I have a compaq presario cq60 and the wireless will not work. HP's "tech support" people just read help info off the computer and don't know what to do. My computer will connect to the network, but not from the network to the internet, no matter what network it is or where I am. They sent me a new one but the wireless still doesn't work, no matter where I am! I have Vista. I have not downloaded anything, haven't even installed Office on the new one! Oh, with Atheros wireless.

    It just came out of the box a week ago. Does it really need an update? If so, how do I get it since I can't get online?

    I can connect to the network, no matter where I am. I do not have a problem getting on any network. It is from the network to the internet that I get a red X!

    You can still access the Internet if your Laptop is hard wired connected to router or to a modem via Ethernet cable. Yes, it is since your Laptop is not allowing to connect to any network in a certain place.

TRY UNPLUGGING AND REMOVING THE POWER CORD. THEN REMOVE THE BATTERY AND LEAVE IT OUT FOR A FEW MINUTES. THEN RETURN THE BATTERY AND PLUG IN THE POWER. HOPEFULLY IT WILL RESET ITSELF WHEN YOU TURN IT BACK ON. IF NOT, YOU MAY NEED ANOTHER WIRELESS CARD OR A BIOS UPDATE. HERE ARE SOME LINKS THAT MAY HELP:

Internet Connection Issues - Compaq CQ60.


Hi.

First of all go the modem, wireless router or both and turn them off at the source (plug socket) and wait two minutes, while you are waiting go to the laptop and restart it, go back to the modem/router ad turn them/it back on. See if you can connect to the internet when the laptop fully boots up.

Let me know how you get on.

Good luck!

My compaq presario cq60 wont connect to my wireless router but other devices in my home have connected fine


Hi,
Check if the router has any restrictions, if not, try uninstalling any wireless program on the compaq and using the windows connection.
Be sure you are selecting the right encryption.
Kind regards

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 and a Netgear WNR2000. They'll connect through an ethernet cable but not using wireless. The router is working fine with other devices.


check the connections for the wireless card and make sure they're both attached, you can see where to look here
http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-motherboard-from-compaq-presario-cq50-cq60-cq70-laptop/

if connected make sure not a firewall issue. Try removing all wireless profiles stored in your computer and re-connect to your home wireless network, make sure that you have the correct encryption needed if your wireless is secured.
Or... Click on Start select Control Panel. Select Network and Internet option and then click the Network and Sharing Center. In the tasks on the left click Manage Wireless Networks. Click your network name in the list, then right-click and select Remove Network. This will clear out the profile. Then go back to the Network and Sharing Center and click Connect to a network and reconnect to your network.
might actually be better to start with last one first but I have one too and wireless comes undone easy enough.
hope this helps
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a rating of 4.It will help me
as well. Thank you
