I was able to connect to my HP Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop to my WiFi Network using NetGear. When I reconfigured the network I could connect to all other network like Dell Lptop , Nokia Smart Phone and HP...


Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)

If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA.
Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter.
If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.

Hope it helped,

Hp pavilion dv6 how do i turn on the wireless capability

he light at the top of the keyboard is the button. It does not look like a button. Press it and wait as much as two seconds for the color to change. You will then need to re-establish a connection to the wireless router. Click on the wireless icon next to or near the clock in the task tray of your screen. Choose a connection from the list that appears. Thanks for using Have a great day.

NO Power,but when you press power button the wireless led became orange,but stll no power,desplay,and the procesor fan not working,.,

this could be a problem with your power cable. If the power button and wireless LED go orange, means battery is not charged. try to borrow another power cable (if possible) otherwise you will have to bring it to a service center.

I formatted my hard drive and can't connect wirelessly.


If you've lost your ssid, then the best way to connect is to reset the router. That linksys router has a reset button on the back of it. Hold in for about 10 seconds, and it will reset it back to the factory defaults. Then login to it and reset your ssid.

Good Luck

I am serching a sound driver for my intel celeron

Processors don't need sound drivers, sound cards need sound drivers. That's important to know if your looking for drivers;

You have Vista? Is your sound card a RealTek? If so, HERE'S YOUR DRIVER.

Otherwise, visit the ACER WEBSITE and find the driver for your system.

Same wireless problem

Check with your laptop's manual. The wireless switch is usually hidden in a spot that makes it difficult to find, basically so that you cannot hit it by accident.
For example, a Compaq Presario R3000 has a button on the exact left hand corner of the front of the notebook, such that it cannot be seen easily, but when you push it to activate wireless, you will see a very faint light blue icon near the right front button.
On an HP laptop,the wireless button is on the bottom.

On my ACER, there is not button. It is an automatic switch between wire and wireless.

So look carefully for the switch, because if there is such a switch, it will be difficult to find. But it is most likely that there is no switch at all.

Internet connection light

Help & Support has everything that's in the owner's Guide. Just ask it.

Top left button, above the keyboard, is Wireless On/Off.

If nothing happens, go to CONTROL PANEL / NETWORK CONNECTIONS. R-click on Wireless Network Connection. L-click DISABLE. Wait about 5 seconds, do it again and L-click ENABLE. That should reset the modem and get things going.

After you establish an internet connection, go to START / PROGRAMS / HP / HP (SOFTWARE) UPDATES and install the latest patches. They will include aa newer version of HP Wireless Assistant

Good luck.

Wireless internet

you might want to check the device manager in the system under control panel. Check if the wireless network card is installed. If it is then simply try restarting your computer, if not try to do some sort of system restore. cheers!
