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

Respected Sir/Madam I am using Compaq Pesario C500 Laptop and i don't have the VGA/Display driver, i tried few but it's not working, i will be very thankful to you all if u suggest me or provide me the...


First, turn over your laptop nd find the sticker with the complete model written. Next, click here to visit the model selection page.Click on the exact model number to search proper drivers.

On the next page that opens, select your OS.This will take you to another page of drivers. Click on the appropriate Video VGA driver (or can be named after chip like Intel GMA, ATI etc)

If you have Win 7 and cannot find a driver, use Windows update to search for it. Note that due to software changes, some hardware does not work with Win 7 thus no driver can be provided. In other cases, Vista or even XP drivers work satisfactorily.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

Hi,
The wireless network may be encrpyted with a wep password. So you will need to check this in the network when you see the detected network click connect. you will be promted for a wep password.

Second thing you will need to check if you must specify and ip address. a subnet and a gateway address or leave it dynamic that is it will find an Ip address and everything automatically by itself.

My wireless button does not work on compaq nx7010


Press the Windows key on the Keyboard and then press the "R" key while holding down the Windows key to open the Run dialog box.
Then, type "msinfo32" in the Run dialog box and click OK to open the System Information window.
In the left pane, click on the plus sign next to the Components then click on the plus sign next to the Network.
Under the Network, click on the Adaptor to view the information regarding all the network adaptors functional in the Computer.

You can view the Network adaptor's information on the right pane. On the right pane, check whether the wireless adaptor is listed or not.

Furthermore, you can check in the Device manager under the "Network Adaptor" category whether the wireless adaptor is listed.

If the wireless adaptor is not listed in either of the windows then the issue is hardware related and service will be required.
