If ur sure that that it is the fn and f2 that u have to press simultaneously to turn on wireless capabilty. Make sure u press it long enough
Right click on wireless network connection item in ur system bar and goto view available wireless connection and check what message is displayed there
If it still says that " No wireless network were found , make sure wireless switch is on "
Contact COMPAQ


...........
If ur not sure whether it FN F2 , then try to FN & F5 or FN & F2

Wireless is usually not the way to go for streaming. At the least, you will want N-class router and wireless adapter if you don't have them already. Look for things with letter "N" in the model number. I'm guessing you're on Windows XP, in which case your laptop will have a B- or G-class wireless card built in. Upgrade to a USB N-class adapter. XP should support it. Personally I'm brand loyal to netgear; they make a fine wireless adapter in the neighborhood of $30 - of course, you'll need an N-class router to take full advantage of the USB adapter's capabilities, and vice versa.

More than likely there are two issues. Either there is a physical switch that is turned off; or the wireless chip has gone out. The chips are about $30 online.

When you purchased the network-adapter, did it include a CD-ROM with device-drivers for Windows 98? Did you install those drivers?

Many "new" network-adapters include software that *ONLY* supports newer versions of Windows (XP/Vista/7) and no longer include support for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Look on eBay for another 3COM adapter, since that adapter worked for you.

Hi,
You have probably not installed the drivers required for the wireless adapter. Go to Dell website and search for your model's drivers. Look for wireless adapter drivers.
Please also check that your wireless adapter is on. Some laptops have a switch on the front side of the laptop to turn the wireless on or off. On other laptops is the combination of the Fn key and one of the F1-12 keys.

I renewed my Norton security subscription and now I can't get my wireless connection to work. What do I need to do to fix this?


Seems like Norton is blocking your connection. I'm pretty sure its something to do with Norton. Try looking through Norton and its settings to see what is blocking your connections.

you will need to purchase an adapter from your isp to use with your new notebook.

A modem or wifi router will still need to be connected to an ISP service.

It's not a physical switch, and they really should put more thought into the error messages they write. To "flip" the "switch" you hold down your function key and hit F2 (you'll notice a little symbol on the F2 button - that's the "radio switch"). After that, just right click on your wireless connection and choose repair.
