Re: I am unable to set up wireless.

What model router do you have? Are any other computers connected to this router? Can you see the SSID for your router when you attempt to connect?

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.

that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.

Where do i switch on the wireless on my laptop, COMPAQ NV9000


I was unable to find your model notebook, but most are turned via 3 ways:

1: Wireless Switch on the side or front of your pc.

2. You can do so from the control panel under wireless settings. (XP/Vista)

3. HP/Compaq Assistance software installed on your pc. This can be found by clicking on the start menu, and scrolling until you see something like "Compaq Utilities". Use this to configure and start your wireless network.

How to enable WI-FI function on Compaq Presario 2500 lap top.

Go to "network connections"

It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.

If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.

Internet connection

dear kandy

So you can't even ping a website, right?

A few suggestions and questions to try to isolate the source of the problem:

1. Are you going through a wireless Access Point connected to a wired router, or are you just using a wireless router? Please post the exact makes/models of your wireless devices.

2. When the Internet access dies, can you at least ping the IP of the router and/or Access Point, or the IPs of any of the other computers on the internal network?

3. Check your system log files to see if Windows is recording any error messages related to the connection drops in those logs:

Open the Event Viewer utility in your Administrative Tools control panel.

In the Event Viewer, look through the System and Application logs for entries flagged as "Warning" or "Error"; double-clicking on any of those entries will open a "details" window with more information about the error/warning. If you find any entries that seem to relate to network errors, post the full and exact contents given in the detail windows.

4. To determine if the problem lies specifically with your wireless connection or with your network software in general, connect the laptop to the router via an Ethernet cable and see if you still experience the problem.

oke i have this post can help you
