I have just bought a second hand Compaq 5185 keyboard and I would like to know how to configure the special top buttons. Some work, others don't.


Certain models of HP desktop computer come with an "Internet Keyboard" packaged in with the other equipment. This Internet Keyboard differs from a regular keyboard in that it has a series of buttons along the sides that allow you to do things like open your Web browser with the tap of a button. You can reassign the actions to these keys and reprogram it away from its default settings using your Control Panel.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Keyboard." Click the "Hardware" tab, then click the "Properties" button. Click the listing for the Internet keyboard key you want to change. In the "Target" box, select the program you want that key to open. Click "Apply." The specified key will now open the specified program. Repeat this step for all of the other keys on your Internet keyboard that you want to configure.

Access configuration


Step 1 Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be on. Step 2 Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate, Norton Personal Firewall, and Windows XP firewall may block access to the configuration pages. Check the help files included with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it. Step 3 Configure your Internet settings. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double-click the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab, click the button to restore the settings to their defaults. Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click the LAN Settings button. Nothing should be checked. Click OK. Go to the Advanced tab and click the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK out to the desktop and close any open windows. Step 4 Check your IP address. Your computer must have an IP address in the same range of the device you are attempting to configure. Most D-Link devices use the 192.168.0.X range.
