Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

Wireless not working...

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop and the wireless does not work. I am suposed to have some sort of internal card, and my computer says that I am connected, but when I try to use the internet it says that it cannot be displayed. I also have a button to turn it off and on, and that does not work, either. I have been able to use the wireless in the past, about two years ago at home. Since I started college I decided not use my wireless and just connect to their network via a Cat 5 cable. Now that I would like to use my wireless again, it won't let me.

I don't know much about computers, but any help is appreciated! Thank you!

If you want to use the College wireless system, then you will have to conatct the administration and they will point you in the right direction.

Although the service is normally free for students, you need to have the IP, subnet and gateway assigned to the laptop to access the service. They may also request your Mac address from your laptop. This is just the unique identifier to help protect the network from outside users.

Even check with a few of the others you will see at lunch using theirs, they will be happy to point you in the right direction.

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...


Hi!

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,

Bogdan

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup


To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.

How could you get the wireless card to work on firefox len05. i can plug cat5e cable to work on line. but since i dump the windows. on my on firefox to use the compaq presariov2000. and install cent05....


ok, Firefox being an application, I am somewhat confused about what you are trying to do. If your computer is connecting to the network on wireless then you shouldn't have to do anything to get Firefox to work. If your Computer is not connecting to wireless through the card it is most likely because you don't have the correct drivers for the operating system you installed. Since the computer came with Windows on it you will need to search the web for the proper drivers for your system and device.
