Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
My wireless internet button does not work. I can't connect to the internet and get a message that says make sure your button is on...
There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 buttons, (especially the wireless button and volume-down button) where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.
You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!

I had the same problem and found that it was enabled in the network connections & no issues under device manager. Mine had to have the control panel with the buttons (wireless network etc.) on it replaced... Mine also had the mute button not working at the same time! I hope you get it fixed

Go to control pannel, network connections, and look if the wifi is disabled, if so, right click enable

okay i need to no what router you are using and what internet you have..
if you have a pass word on your router and no how to access the configuration settings on your router and had no success then look on the back of the router for a restart button.. then log in to your routers configuration and set it up again.. now if you only have a laptop and router you will need to use a network cable to access the configuration.. or if you have another PC connected to it..
look in the book with the router..
if your not sure give me details on what model the router is
and if your running other computers off it
and if your using DSL or ADSL internet.
networking is a pain sometimes
i have a router with 2 PC's and one wireless laptop..
ask me for more help if it doesn't help thank you

There is no switch on an Inspiron 2200. I would go to Dell's website and download the drivers for your model # and then uninstall the existing adapter. then try installing the new driver and let me know what happens.

The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
