    Hi,



    Are you using a router to connect to the internet, if so does it have a USB connection.



    Cheers

  1. turn on the computer that has the printer attached.
  2. configure computer to share (start/settings/printer-faxes/right click on default printer/select sharing tab/ select share this printer/ apply settings/OK)(This computer must also be connected to the router so your laptop will see it as a network device)
  3. on wireless laptop, add printer
  4. when prompted select network printer.

For my wifes ease of use I purchased for $20.00 network magic which auto configured all my devices and monitored any access to my wireless router so I could choose who could access my open router.

Compaq laptop will not connect to my netgear N300


Try switching the way you connect the wireless. On your laptop there are 2 different ways to connect, one using the the client application that goes with the wireless card, and the other way uses windows to manage and connect to the wireless. Switch them out. If you are using Windows, then use the other or vice versa. Open the software that came with your wireless card it should be on your desktop or in your program list. Click Start/Programs and look for it. For example it might be something like Atheros. Open it and look for a place or check mark on something that says: Let This tool Manage the Wireless, or Use Windows Zero Config to Manage the Wireless.

How can I connect my notebook to another pc without installing LAN??


A Local Area Connection, or LAN, is generally a small home or office network used to link all the devices in the area. With the advent of wireless technologies, LAN networks are no longer limited to the amount of cords you own. Laptops can connect to wireless LAN easily with their built in wireless adapters. Connecting two laptops together over wireless LAN is also easy, but requires a few special steps to give the laptops access to each other.

1Connect both laptops to the wireless network you wish to use. Once connected, click the "Start" button and navigate to the "Network" menu.

2.Click the "Network and Sharing Center" link. Press the "View Computers and Devices" button. A list of devices currently on the network is displayed.

3.Check the list for the names of both laptops. If both laptops are displayed in the list of devices connected to the network, the devices are connected wirelessly to a LAN network.

Replace the Cable and Check.

If the problem still persists then

Give the same network setting to the wireless network adapter as you assigned to your local area connection.

Note: Before doing that remove the IP address of that Local area connection or change it's IP address to some other number.

This will most probably solve your problem.

Otherwise, Used an external USB Wireless Adapter.

From where i can get driver for wireless connection for compac presario C700


Goldie, I am not sure what you want. Do you want to connect to a WLAN or do you want to connect to the WiFI internet.
Anyway. all drivers are at http://www.mininova.org/tor/1070336
Go ahead and download free. Should you want to connect to the internet using your WIFI hardware, then all you need to do is to double click on the WiFi icon in the right bottom of system tray. And search for WLAN in the area. When shown connect to any one whose WEP key (password) you have. Without WEP key you can not unless the connection is an open one/unsecured. which is difficult to find these days because of security risk involved.

Can't find wireless hardware switch


I found someone locally who could tell me where the hardware switch was phyically located. I had thought that this was a software switch, but it's actually a button on the keyboard of the laptop, but it isn't labeled and, since I bought the laptop as a refurb on eBay, I didn't have a user manual to tell me where the switch is located.

This is just one source. I did a google search for USB wireless adapters. They are used by many users. Generally these units cost the same whether online or at the local Radio Shack, etc. because of shipping.
