    Thanks! This all is over my head, but the detailed instructions really helped. The device manager says that the WLAN driver is working properly so I guess that the internal network adaptor is NOT secured which would explain why hitting the computer worked once. Thanks again!!! Btw, I turned on my computer this morning and the wireless is working... This was all a mystery to me, but not anymore. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

The internal network adaptor may be fragile, and not secured properly. However, I would not suggest you try to secure it as it may break.

So, just make sure your wireless LAN device driver is properly installed. TO check, right click my computer, properties, then "hardware" tab, then device manager. There, check for your driver under "Network Adaptors" and see if it is properly installed.

If it is not, you can re-install it from the company's support& download site.

If it is installed, go to a more experienced techician to securely fasten the internal network adaptor in place.

My Dell desktop using Windows XP can't connect to my Belkin 5720 router but my laptop still works?


This sounds like a hardware failure, but just in case go to your computer Control Panel-Network Connections(Network and Sharing Center for Vista and above), and check your Network adapter settings. If your Network card is not showing, you may have a driver issue, or a bad NIC (Network Interface Card). It shouldn't matter that your router says" wireless hardware not detected", because you are hardwired from the computer to the router. I would check to see if you may have turned off, or blocked Ethernet connections on your router, I would then change my Cat5 (Ethernet) cable, and finally open the desktop and change out the NIC (Network Interface Card).

Compaq presario notebook f700 vista detects no network and no wireless device have tried to connect....other laptop connects to the router fine...presario will connect if ethernet is connected restored to...


Sounds like you've got a bad driver from Windows update which is not a first. Firstly turn off automatic windows updates so it doesnt auto-update again. Where you re-installed the drivers from in Device Manager choose uninstall and also there will be an option to delete the files associated with the driver, get rid of those. Heres a link straight to the HP website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=au&lang=en&product=3636382 there is 3 drivers to choose from either look in device manager or it doesnt matter if you try the wrong 1 it just wont find the hardware. If this all works fine turn back on windows update but choose let me decide when to download and instal then uncheck the wireless update, this will hide it from all future updates. Please let me know how it all goes i still have a few more ideas if not. Cheers from Scott

Laptop presario F700 wireless worked for several months then quit. the light is amber now instead of blue. we were on wireless at work when it stopped not on our home where other wireless devices work.


I had the same problem till one day when my computer completely went off on closing it it could not boot I googled somewhere on this forum and found out that the reason it could not boot was the graphics chip that had loosened i had it re-soldered and the next time i turned it on the wireless was working fine so my suggestion to you is that you have your chips re-soldered you never know... what may happen am happily working with my wireless card now

My Compaq Presario F700's Wi-Fi stopped working


can you check if the driver is properly installed?
- go to start, point to computer, right click then click manage, click device manager and see whether you have an exclamation mark or "X" sign on one of your devices. if yes, you need to un-install first the driver, restart machine, re-install the driver properly.
