USB or CAT 5. Both are on the bqack of your router. If you mean firmware or software wise thats a whole different ballgame.

I have a compaq presario r4000 will no longer connect to wireless after installing a netgear router


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryptionkey.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

My compaq presario cq60 wont connect to my wireless router but other devices in my home have connected fine


Hi,
Check if the router has any restrictions, if not, try uninstalling any wireless program on the compaq and using the windows connection.
Be sure you are selecting the right encryption.
Kind regards

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 and a Netgear WNR2000. They'll connect through an ethernet cable but not using wireless. The router is working fine with other devices.


check the connections for the wireless card and make sure they're both attached, you can see where to look here
http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-motherboard-from-compaq-presario-cq50-cq60-cq70-laptop/

if connected make sure not a firewall issue. Try removing all wireless profiles stored in your computer and re-connect to your home wireless network, make sure that you have the correct encryption needed if your wireless is secured.
Or... Click on Start select Control Panel. Select Network and Internet option and then click the Network and Sharing Center. In the tasks on the left click Manage Wireless Networks. Click your network name in the list, then right-click and select Remove Network. This will clear out the profile. Then go back to the Network and Sharing Center and click Connect to a network and reconnect to your network.
might actually be better to start with last one first but I have one too and wireless comes undone easy enough.
hope this helps

What will i download because i want to install wireless connection for internet in my compaq laptop


You will need to buy a wireless USB device for your laptop unless your model has a WLAN already on the mobo.

I suggest either a Netgear or Belkin 54g thet will come with drivers and if you know your WEP key for your wireless enabled router the rest is easy just search for available networks find you SSID and input the WEP code.

Network problem


You didn't mention which windows you are using, I have XP Sp2 and have had the same problem this week in fact except I have a dlink router. So assuming you have XP Sp2 then try this patch it should solve your problem.
