Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, mum bought a compaq presario C700 notebook and I was able to set her up on the internet via ethernet cable, but I am not sure how to set up the notebook wireless. Do I need an external aerial or should it work by itself. If it will work wirelessly by itself, how do I set it up, I have had a quick look and tried to set up but it will not find the router. Thanks in advance

You need to buy a wireless router to connect to your laptop. For example the Linksys wifi router it's easy to setup just run the cdrom install in follow the instruction. and also you can setup or configure it by webase configuration of router. Just type to the internet browser IP 192.168.1.1 if the user name appears just type admin and password sometimes admin also or 1234

How or what do i need to connect internet i have router (2wire) from AT&T for wireless laptop but now i bought a desktop an compaq presario 5000 with windows 98


You need a Wireless adapter for the Compaq desktop. But with Win98, it will be almost impossible to find one that will work in your Compaq. Everything out there requires at least WIN XP.

Best thing to do is to use an Cat5 Ethernet cable and connect the Desktop to the 2Wire.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
Thanks, Joe

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.

I have been given a compaq presario C700 notebook with Vista Home basic systenm and I need assistance in enabling access to the work network and other devices on the ethernet


To connect by Ethernet catagory 5 or 6 cable

plug your laptop into an open port on the back of the network router

and set your workgroup name to the same as the network workgroup name

then make sure there are actually drives being shared with you on the network


If you are attempting to connect to a wireless network
you will need the wireless network information

1. your network SSID name
2. your encryption key or password needed to connect to the wireless network
