Compaq laptop won't connect to internet

Hello -

the message I get shows that the wireless aerial is disconnected. My desktop and the other 2 desktops in my house all have internet connections through a common wireless verizon modem, but lately the laptop has had an issue. I don't know if there's a button or something that was turned off. The little switch in the front of the laptop is turned on and the light is orange. Please help! THis is a new laptop.

    I haven't been able to get my Compaq Laptop to work with my Verizon wireless connection for months. My other laptop works and I can connect wirelessly with my Compaq at other peoples houses. a friend with a Compaq Laptop came over the other day and couldn't connect with Verizon either.

Restart the computer. go into the F10 options menu at the load up screen. load default options and exit saving changes. the orange light should go to blue when you restart.

My wireless products (ipad, iphone, laptops) pick up my wireless d-link router, but will not let me log on. Why? I lost connectivity out of nowhere. Called cablevision. They verified it wasnt a modem...


Solution:
1. Clean cookies, history, temporary internet, etc, using software CCleaner (free).
2. Turn off the computer, disconnect the d-link router from the computer (disconnect the cable from router to the computer).
3. Turn on the computer, wait until desktop
4. Reconnect the cable router, to the computer.
So, you refresh router and the computer connections.

I am unable to use the bluetooth app in my laptop..the moment i open, it shows error 797 a connection to the remote access server was not made because the modem was not found.......please help me..........


This is for GPRS connection
You must have from your network provider: the internet access point name, your user name and password.
Download and unzip the attached file in a folder on your desktop

1- Disconnect the device from your desktop
2- On the Activesync icon on your desktop, open "Connection Settings". Uncheck "Allow USB Connection".
3- On your device: Go to "Beam" (in Settings/Connections), and uncheck "Receive all Incoming beams".
4- Then in Programs, click on "Wireless Modem". With the Connection type on USB, click on "Start".
5- Now, connect your device to the desktop. The "Found New Hardware Wizard" starts on your desktop. Click "Install from a specific location", then "Don't search. I will choose...", then click on "Modems", and "Have Disk..." and go to the folder where you unzipped the attached file.
The HTC USB Modem will be shown in the compatible hardware: click to install. Continue if you receive the alert of the software not passing the Windows XP compatibility test (Continue anyway). Finish.
6- Now, in Control Panel of your desktop, open "Phone and Modem Options". Select the "HTC USB Modem" and click on "Properties". In the "Advanced" tab type for "Extra initialization commands":
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","xxx","",0,0
where xxx is your internet access point.
Click OK to finish.
7- On your device (always open in the Wireless Modem program), click on Tools/Options. Check the Preset GPRS connections and write in the APN, your network provider internet access point.
8- Finally, on your desktop, go to "Network Connections" and click "Create a new connection". Choose "Connect to the internet", then "Set up my connection manually". Click "Connect using a dial-up modem", then give a name to your ISP. In phone number type *99#. Get username and password from your network provider.

Better keep a shortcut of this connection on your desktop for quick access.

Each time you want to use your device as a modem:
Disconnect your device
Disable Activesync from your desktop by unchecking the "Allow USB connection"
Open Wireless Modem on your device and push on Start (with the Connection Type on USB)
Connect your device, then dial from your desktop using the shortcut you created

PS: Remember to enable Activesync once you've finished.

Slow Internet Connect


i have the same router. I recommend that you download a new driver of your lan card for your desktop pc, also if you have P2P and bittorrent applications, try to disable them first and see the difference, those programs slow down the your internet, because they hog your bandwidth and connects to multiple users.

Cannot connect new laptop to internet


Do you have a router set up? If not two things you can do:

1) Buy and setup wireless router wired with desktop and wireless with laptop.

OR

2) Remove network cable from back of Desktop and plug into laptop each time you want to use Internet. Cheaper option but more hassle to switch back and forth.
