Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

How do i install wifi in my computer?


This should work:
goto

look up your model of adapter and then look for a support link that will let you download the software for the adapter .
This will bypass the cd.
Good luck and have fun,

HOW DO I SET UP NETGEAR WIRELESS G-ROUTER FOR MY COMPAQ PRESARIO NOTEBOOK PC. I HAVE NORTON ANTI-VIRUS INSTALLED ON MY HP PAVILION. HOW DO I GET IT TO INSTALL ON MY NOTEBOOK PC?


To set up the router, you connect directly to the router with a network cable, log into the router using your Internet browser, to a code like 192.168.0.1, or similar. I suggest that you use the wizard, but be sure to change: Wireless security of WEP and access code of your 10 digit home or cell phone#, change system ID to something you recognize, change router access password AND RECORD IT, change wireless channel to 11 and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones.

With routers, you have to SAVE on each page or loose settings.

Then install the router, and look for it in the wireless connections list on your laptop. Give the access password and you should be good to go. The desktop usually connects via network cable.

Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000


Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.

I have compaq presario Model CQ50-130US. I trying to find its drivers but invain. Please help.


(1) SATA DRIVER

"32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility"

filename = f6flpy3286.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2101&DwnldID=17061&lang=eng

Unzip the contents, add one component (iaAHCI.inf) into your nLite (a free slipstreaming program) slipstream build and you will avoid Blue Screen of Death when you try to install WinXP. Note: select Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller when you add iaAHCI.inf to your slipstream. Or you can just add all the drivers.

After you get XP up and running, you can install the rest of the drivers for the notebook:

(2) CHIPSET

"CHIPSET_INF Update Utility - Primarily for Intel 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets"

filename = infinst_autol.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2991&DwnldID=16026&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

For the executable version (filename = infinst_autol.exe), use this link from Intel:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16023/a08/infinst_autol.exe&agr=&ProductID=816&DwnldId=16023&strOSs=&OSFullName=&lang=eng


(3) GRAPHICS

"Intelâ® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* XP (zip)"

filename = win2k_xp14364.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2991&DwnldID=17116&lang=eng

You'll unzip the contents of that zip, and then point your drive update to the folder with those contents to update your graphics.

(4) AUDIO (2-step process)

(a) Conexant Patch (do this first)

"Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver version 1.0a available for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000"

filename = kb888111.exe

http://www.filewatcher.com/m/kb888111.exe.682200.0.0.html

(b) Install audio drivers

"Conexant Audio Driver for Windows XP"

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&softwareitem=ob-10516-1&printable=no&encodeUrl=true&

(5) NETWORK ADAPTER (wired)

Realtek RTL8100E/RTL8101E/RTL8102E-GR/RTL8103E(L)/RTL8102E(L) NIC Driver 5.714

filename = PCIE_Install_5714_0216.zip

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/REALTEK/Realtek-RTL8100E-RTL8101E-RTL8102E-GR-RTL8103E-L-RTL8102E-L-NIC-Driver-5714.shtml

(6) NETWORK ADAPTER (wireless)

Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5006 802.11a/b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter
(version 7.6.0.114)

filename = sp39403.exe

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39403.exe

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.

How do i find out if my computer has built in wifi


First thing would be to see if you have any antenna sticking out of the back of your desktop.

If not, then right-click on "My Computer", choose "Manage" and go down to "Device Manager".
Scroll down to the "Network Adapters" section. Click on the "+" sign and see if you have any device installed that has the word "wireless" in it.
If so, voila!
If not, you will have to add a wireless network card, something like this. I assume that this is the case, because desktops usually do not have wireless pre-installed.

My HP wireless doesn't work? I don't have wireless connection on my compaq laptop anymore.


check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)

if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,

I have been given a compaq presario C700 notebook with Vista Home basic systenm and I need assistance in enabling access to the work network and other devices on the ethernet


To connect by Ethernet catagory 5 or 6 cable

plug your laptop into an open port on the back of the network router

and set your workgroup name to the same as the network workgroup name

then make sure there are actually drives being shared with you on the network


If you are attempting to connect to a wireless network
you will need the wireless network information

1. your network SSID name
2. your encryption key or password needed to connect to the wireless network
