It must be due to slow internet connection. If you have connected the tab with a wireless router, try with the following steps,
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from ScanMySpeed.com before and after following these steps.

Wireless not seeing internet but ethernet is


Try uninstalling the wireless adapter from the control panel. Reboot the system (although with Window 7 that shouldn't be necessary), and let it Windows auto-discover the device again. Disable/enable doesn't for Windows to re-install everything.

My wlan (function/F10) key doesn't work/light stays amber!!!!! No wireless internet/Internet only works when directly plugged into PC.


Check in device manager for the wireless card. Right click 'my computer' select 'properties' click the hardware tab and device manager, it should be listed as a network device. if it's listed update the drivers, it may just be disabled in windows. If it's listed as installed and working correctly in device manager it may be faulty.
you can also try running 'cmd' to lauch the command prompt and typing "ipconfig /all" this will show all available devices in your computer and their state.

Good luck.

I can't get my wireless to work on my laptop - I honestly cannot even remember when or how it stopped working. I get a message when I try to connect: The network adapter "Intel (R) WiFi Link...


Very first thing to try is check to see if the wireless is turned on!
There may be a small switch on the case that must be turned on. But this doesn't sound like your problem--just thought I'd mention it.
Then go into the device manager and remove the adapter. Don't worry--this won't hurt anything.
Restart the computer and let it find the adapter. It should work after that.
Other than that, I'd have to know the actual settings on the adapter to help you.

Wireless Switch


From your description I agree, its probably a damaged switch. I never recommend anyone taking apart a laptop unless they are a mechanical whiz, have experience with laptop disassembly or can afford to break it beyond using. As far as turning the built-in wireless card on without the switch there might be a way. I don?t have a Compaq laptop to experiment with, however, my Dell Latitude BIOS settings has a setting to automatically turn on the wireless card at boot-up. Perhaps yours does too, during your laptops initial boot process get into your BIOS setup menu (press F2 or if that doesn?t work F10 keys). Look for an option relating to your built-in devices or wireless device. My Dell setting is fairly ovious: "Turn on wireless device". If you find a simliar option turn it on, reboot and look for the wireless adaptor. Another option may be to buy an inexpensive UPS wireless adaptor. You can pick them up on Ebay for around $30, not as spiffy as the built-in but probably a lot cheaper than paying a repair shop to fix a three year old laptop. Good luck.
