You didn't specify if he has DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the softwarehooking up a lap top to a router - 1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

Compaq c700 wi fi not working i tried pressing the wifi button but still the LED stil red.


Have you checked that the wireless network connection is not disabled in "control panel" "network connections". Also check Device Manager and make sure that the wireless device is listed under network adapters. Have you turned off the wireless device in the bios? If you need help with any of these let me know. I will also need to know which operating system you are using i.e. XP or Vista

first check in your bios if the internal wifi card is enabled.
if it was not then your problem should be fixed by enabling it.

if it was enabled then try :

go to the compaq/hp website go to support and get the wifi driver for your model c700.
and reinstall the driver.

if this doesnt help pls add more info like what is not working is the wifi driver installed does the wifi card show up in the hardware propertys etc any info can help.
