Recently I had our company computer service personnel put a long distance land line connection on my desktop for convenience. Since then I have not been able to connect to my home (or anywhere else) wireless system. I continually see the red "X" in the wireless connection box and it shows "Disconnected" and when I click on "disable" and then click on "enable" it goes back to the "Disconnected" sign and shows no local wireless sources. What might be the problem?

To connect to the internet you must have one of the following, Phone land line , mobile device, wifi , or blue tooth. the latter can connect to a near by unit if the are both turned on . the land line or mobile have to be configured on your computer .
So do you have internet service at the house? If so you can plug the ethernet cable from the modem directly into the computer's ethernet port.
If you're talking about directly connecting to your cell phone, then the phone has to have the built in router in it. If it does, you can connect your computer to it wirelessly.
If you're talking about a regular old house phone (land line) then you would be very slow if you could get it connected. I don't think the newer models of computers even have a modem port to connect a telephone line into it. But basically you would still need a internet service provider to connect it.
Bear in mind that there is a difference between the phone cord and the ethernet cord. The phone cord is smaller in size and the end that plugs in is smaller.
Check in the Device Manager, if it shows as working, I would uninstall the device, then reinstall with the latest drivers. If it still doesn't work, you may need to see about replacing the wireless radio, if that is possible on this particular machine.
I could not find anything indicating that there is a physical on/off switch for the wifi on your particular machine.
It looks as though this is equipped with a Broadcom WLAN card.
Try going to this link for HP/Compaq put in the required information for product number then click on software/driver downloads. then follow the steps for installing the driver. That should do the trick after a clean install of the operating system.
Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:
Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
Click the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. The network card should appear under Network Adapters. Note:
If the card has a exclamation mark over a yellow background, then this
is an indication that the card is experiencing a problem. Go to Driver
download step 5.
Verify that the radio is enabled. It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems. Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons
in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it
may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless
radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side
of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless
connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On
Check for association to an Access Point.
If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the
configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility
will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what
channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received.
It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low
due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can
be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area,
and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if
using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will
need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as
they will overwrite the setting of the utility.
hi there, i had kind a same problem with u, the only difference is mine shows "connected" but i can't surf the internet when others in my network are doing just fine. 1st i tried to uninstall my LAN card driver and the reinstall it back. It worked, i can surf the internet but only for a few minutes. So i installed a firewall, in my case, i installed windows defender. After reinstalling my LAN card driver, i realized an unknown program tried to change some of my LAN driver files, so i denied the program access using windows defender. The problem solved !! Maybe it's a virus or spyware, i don't know because before installing windows defender, my avg and antispyware don't detect any virus/spyware. Hope this help, gud luck
It's just a regular modem, LiteOn is name brand, just like Conexant. Also, modems are used for dialing on a land line, and must be connected or hardwired to a land line, there is no such thing as a wireless modem, however there are modems that can communicate with computers through wireless receivers, but they are not considered wireless modems, they're considered and called wireless capable modems. These are generally found in high end office fax machines.
