I am unable to access the wire less lan in compaq presario c700
have you been able to access the wire less before? Or is this a new computer? Are you home where you have control of the router, or at work or someplace else?
Are you sure it's the driver? Are you sure you input your wire less SSID and password (if WEP or WPA encrypted)?
For a driver, you want to make sure it's not working now as far as the windows device manager. Can you check in control panel--system--->hardware tab--device manager? Under 'N" - network adapters-- is your wire less card listed? Or is it listen down by "O" - other devices (which would indicate that the computer can't tell if it's a wireless card since the driver is missing)
lastly, if the latter, to get a driver, we need to know the exact name and model of your computer, plus the operating system youre using.
And also, if youre using windows, the "windows update" function not only updates windows, but can also check for troubled devices and update some drivers. You might want to try that.
that said, most connection problems are not driver related, but more the person turned off wireless via a hardware switch or F key on the laptop, or didnt type in their encryption password correctly.
