Question about Compaq Presario CQ60-220US PC Laptop
First you have to be sure that your Lan card is installed..
for that just take a look into the device manager ..to get there click right on the my computer icon ..than choose properties..and hardware ..and then device manager ..In the window for devices..take a look over the network area..and see if your card (LAN network adapter) ..is ok ..if it is in yellow with a ask sign on it ..you will need to install the driver for it again ..
If you have a motherboard drivers disk ..get it from there if you not ...contact the support site for Compaq and download it ..
here is the link ..
here is the link I already selected your model all you have to do is to select the operation system you use..and choose from the list the LAN adapter driver .;download it and run it to install..
at that moment you know for sure that you have a functional lan card on your computer ..
now connect teh cable to one of the router's ports..and open the lan card from the 2 monitors like icon in the tray sistem ..local area connection ...
click properties in the window..and in the list that appears..click on TCP/IP protocol ..
it will open a window that has 2 options ..one is to obtain an IP address automatically ...and second is to use the following Ip addresses..
In your case use the fist one ..and see if the router will assign the IP addresses necesary ..and will conect it ..if not ..you will have to configure it manually ..like it follows..
the ip address will be the routers Ip but the last digit you have to add the number of teh port ..for example if it is plugged into the number 2 port ..the router 's ..192.168.1.1 so that the port's IP will be ..192.168.1.3
the subnet mask will always be 255.255.255.0
and in this moment the default gateway will be the router itself..so put in the router's IP ..192.168.1.1
for the DNS servers let it take them automatically from the routers settings cause they will be the same ..(the ones you used to have from the provider and insert on the connection when you didnt used a router ,..
this is about all that you have to know to connect it ..
try first to obtain IP automatically ..cause this is the default way to do it ..
