Question about Computers & Internet
I have my computer from compaq and the internal WLAN adapter is not detecting. Presario f577wm
Please make sure that youre wireless adapter is on to begin with. I say this as a precautionary measure cause most of the time, i see many cases at work with this simple mistake done. If there is a hardware swich, make sure it's on. IF Hardware switch is on, make sure wireless connection is enables. This can be checked if you go to Control panel>network conenctions>wireless lan (see if it's shaded or faded grey. That means it is not enabled).
Once you have done this, and it shoes that the wirelss LAN connection is up and running, do what S_n_A_k_E said. Check if the driver for the wireless adapter is having problems and reinstall if necessary. If even that is not the issue, then make sure that you havent accidentally MAC locked your notebook out of the network (yes, i've seen this happen before as well :D)
Alternatively, you might wanna check out if you're behind a systen firewall that doesnt allow connectivity or if in a coporate enviroment, make sure that your in your proper VLAN zone. Hope this helps.
