First - From a working computer - double click on the URl below - it should take you to the Compaq 610 downloads page...
If it doesn't, Copy and paste it into the Browser. Go down the page to Driver - Network the first item is Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows to the right of this, is a Downloads tab - Click on this and follow any instructions to download to computer.
Assuming you have moved it to your Compaq - e.g. on the Desktop - Double click the Downloaded File to install the driver.

WLAN is turned OFF on my Presario CQ62-225NR?

Try going to device manager and check your wifi network adapter is installed and working properly. you can also try updating the driver from here. From control panel choose hardware and sound and then device manager under devices and printers. Expand the network adapters menu and look for the wifi adapter, right click for options.

I soldered mini pci/e slot on vacant lands of NX6320. I installed original 3945-WLAN from opposite slot, but the card was not recognized on XP; moreover I can't enter SETUP menu-after pressing F10,...

we get like 2 soldering posts here a year, (you are doing something very wrong)
you need a new MOBO now.
its now dead. BIOS died + MOBO dead.
if ram good.
there are 2 cards, mini (wide area and wifi short)
top is wwlan wide area lan (like 3G) WW = wide area lan.

bottom Wlan is wifi car, short range, 100m or less. wifi.
if the bios can not see the card the card is bad.
wlan is on the bottom under PC , memory hatch open
take out ram to get access better to wlan, wifi.
did you know the cards only work in your country)
in our country USA ours are FCC certified, and do no work in your country if not here.
this is clear if you read the Wlan pages in your manual
seen here.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ62, the wireless button stays amber, I have pressed it and it wont change to blue. I have never used the WIFI previously and it has always been amber color. Ive tried to turn on...

its and HP, HP owns COMPAQ, all of it. for vast years.

well it can only be these reasons, on this very old PC.
its now not supported
then you post lacking what OS you are running, making accurate answers impossible , so go to GENERIC mode.
my guess the virus magnet called XP with zero support for 3 years./
  1. its infected, with virus, or that virus corrpted the OS.
  2. the wifi car is bad, seen many bad this old, it happens.
  3. BIOS has it turned off, sorry there are no bios books to answer that now, HP deleted them due to too old. after 10 years.
  4. The software for the wifi , is 2 fold, the wifi driver must be good and the driver that makes the amber button must be good.
  5. by good, it must match the OS you run. unstated by you.
that amber means 2 things, im in airplane mode, (no its dead.)
means the driver is dead, or the chip is dead. or....

the chip will be dead if BIOS has it DISABLED in all cases.
was this the real model>???


if you study PCs and for sure study chips in them
you learn fast that the wifi card (or minipci ) or what ever is there can be made by many suppliers. Intel,,Realtek, , Broadcom, and more.
HP (old compaq) used many of them throughout a production run
some runs ran many long years, even 5 years
and they also have wifi+blutooth option cards, got bluetootH?

what is in your PC only HP knows, by SERIAL numbers
I know because I have PCI scanner, that i can run on your PC.
I run the scanner and see the Intel chip and model there

but is here.
lets say , you said W7 32 bit then at you found your page
took me 1min to do that.

yup in fact has lots of chips. used on this PC, see that fact here

why not ask real HP for help.
and not here, we are not HP. not in the least.

after BIOS is on for this......!!!!

there 5 ways to cure this in a savvy shop
1: PCI scaner, tells me in 1min flat all chips inside, (wow)
2: ask HP with your serial number stated.
3: run each wifi driver and see all but one fail. (tedios but works)
4: remove all hatches, find the wifi card, read the name on it, , now you know what it is so the driver match is easy,
5: PNP it. (using the internet)
6: use the F11 key a powerup and reload the whole OS from scratch,and bam it works (bios not off)

keep in mind PNP cant work unless, you have internet.,
wifi dead, is no internet so PNP is dead. easy no?

if you used a ethernet cable from LT to your router, bingo?
and then saw gee i got internet now.
and then did wifi update in device manager you might get lucky.
luck happens, but with XP , rare.

im sure the DM , device manager shows the wifi dead.

why not post saying OS first.
then ask for wifi fix help
and have and ethernet cable in your and first.
or other pc to get drivers.
there is no other way.

looks like 5 chips used on 1 PC.
see? see that ?
its always a problem this

I neversweat this.
I use this tool to find my wifi chip, run scanner then use Database lookup seen there to find true chips name, Boardcom 1234 or ?

last and not least and the most hard of all are BIOS BOOKs.
wifi is not simple at all is it, its the most hard topic of all.
for sure connecting.
im reading you hp BIOS pages now, in the manual, called HP Setup by HP, using the hot key ESC.

first turn off this.
LAN Power Saving (select models only) (means off on battery)
if on and pC is on battery , the wifi is shut off, if this is present.

read page 99 see that wlan, on off, BINGO
under built in device options in BIOS screens
WLAN Power Saving (select models only)
in the HP service guide bingo
