The easyest way would be to buy a USB wireless adapter.
You just plug it in install the software and thats it.

I'm useing a TPLINK USB adapter, it cost me 20 €

You can also use a internal card, Mini pci most likely. very simple to install also but you might have signal - antenna problems. But this tplink has worked very well in my home and in the city.

No Wireless signal on Presario 2170US Model #DK587AOptions I added a wireless card to my Presario. However when checking the service manual it states "CAUTION: Be careful when connecting and disconnecting...


My 2170US does not have built in wireless like some of the other HP or Compaq models of the same vintage. Buying a mini pci wireless card wont make the wireless work. You will need a wireless card for the pcmcia slot on the left side of the laptop then your wireless will work. If there is an issue with the pcmcia slot a cheap work around is to buy a usb. based wireless card and use one of the two usb.slots in the back. It's not high speed usb.2.0 so it may run a little slower. As long as your pcmcia slot works just install the the card that you can buy even at walmart install the software and your wireless should be up and running. Its an old laptop and not worth spending a bunch of money on when new or used much better machines are out there.

Need Network Controller 4 both Compaq Presario 2100 2500 Laptops


You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.

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.

Yes, but fairly difficult. Try to find a wireless pcmia card with teh original disk that should have a program that will install a utility and o the setup for you.

Wireless connection wont work


To check if the wireless card is bad or OK.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - Is the wireless network connection listed and if so is there a red X on this connection?
If so, right click on the wireless and click Repair - this may fix your problem, it forces the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address.
If it doesn't fix the problem then go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - scroll down to Network Adapters and expand and check your wireless card, is it Working and Enabled?
If has a yellow ? against it or not working then reinstall the wireless card driver.
If the wireless card is built-in check the BIOS to see if the wireless card is enabled, if not enable the wireless card and repeat the above steps.
If this doesn't fix your problem then the wireless card is faulty and you need a new wireless card. You can get a PCMCIA wireless card to replace the faulty wireless card. If the wireless card is built-in then disable the faulty wireless card in the BIOS before you install the new wireless card.

Presario V6110US wireless is inop


There are 2 ways you can work this.

- One of course is the External Wireless card you currently have
- Second, is to replace the internal card. Most laptops ahve a VERY easy to getat wireless card, and you can purchase the card on ebay for as low as 9 dollars plus shipping. Find what model laptop you have, and i'll even make a reccomenation, and show you how to access the wifi card.

Wireless Card will not fit in slot


First, make sure that the type of card that you bought is compatible with the slot. Your presario can use Type I or II standard PC or PCMCIA cards. If the linksys adapter that you bought is not a PC/PCMCIA card, rather an ExpressCard, it really won't fit.

Intel wireless card unsupported - laptop won't boot


try the driver for the PRIOR version of Windows, usually it will work. The driver for 98SE/2000/ etc. may be your fix!

Wireless connection


Hi, what you will need is a PCMCIA wireless card or usb wireless stick, these can purchased pretty cheaply these days from the likes of ebay or your local computer shop should be able to sort you out. PCMCIA would be the one I would choose as these just slot into an empty bay and once installed, can be left there. Hope this helps, if not give me a shout and I'll see what else I can do. Si :)

New Wireless Card


Compaq has an evil bios which only allows certain wireless cards. I would reccomend the Intel Wireless 2200 A/B/G mini-pci card. That is the best for your laptop that they would allow.
