Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless network I have a hidden wireless network at home and have 4 different computers hooked up with no problem (3 laptops and one desktop). I have not successfully gotten my Presario 700 to connect. I took down the firewall and I went through the instructions for connecting it to a hidden network. I got it to find and recognize the network so it shows up and the strength is good. It will not connect. Please help me - the computer is worthless if I can't get it on the network. Thanks!

How to connect the wifi to a acer aspire 5733z - 4851 laptop


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem. If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.

  • 2 Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer. Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
  • 3 Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to. Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
  • 4 Restart the computer. The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

    How to set up wireless home network with a DSL subscription.


    If you have a DSL, "Digital Suscriber Line", most companies will provide you with a modem. Usually the modem will have only one ethernet connection, meaning you can only connect one computer.

    In order to connect multipule computers you will need a wireless router, ethernet HUB, or router.

    Connecting with wireless Router

    The only thing you really need to change is the following 3 settings on the Wireless Router. The SSID (so you know what wireless network is yours), the WPA/PSK and or WPA2/PSK, encryption method TKIP key or password. Under "administration" change the administrator password for a secure wireless connection. ( WRITE DOWN YOUR PASSWORD)

    Connect to your wireless router

    1. Plug in either your (1) wireless card, (2) PCMCIA wireless card, or (3) USB wireless stick.

    2. Turn on your laptop or desktop computer. Select the wireless router with the strongest signal and with the name of your routers (SSID) and click connect.

    3. Open your web browser and type 192.168.1.1
    If this dosn't work, check your wireless router instruction manual for the correct IP address for your model.

    4. Your router will ask for a password, usually (admin, admin) works or (admin, (ENTER) ) try both. If neither work try resetting the router by holding in the reset button for 3 seconds.

    Once you log on to your router you can set parameters to your liking or just set the , {SSID}, {WPA/TKP} key or password, and the router administrator password to keep others from accessing your network and possibly computer.

    Ethernet

    Start at step 3 above.

    I can not figure out how to get the computer to make a wireless connection.


    Add the Home SSID to the Preferred Network List After you set the SSID on your home gateway, you may need to add it to your preferred network list if Windows XP Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled. (Although automatic configuration is nice to have, your IT department may have disabled it on your laptop in order to meet their needs. If they have, you'll need to use the tool provided by your laptop or wireless manufacturer to manually configure wireless settings.) To manually add your home wireless network to the list of preferred networks when Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled, follow these steps:
    • In Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
    • Right-click the Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
    • On the Wireless Networks tab, shown in Figure 3, click Add.

    Figure 3
    • In the Wireless network properties dialog box, shown in Figure 4, enter the SSID you configured for your wireless gateway (ExampleHome_g in this example.)
    netw4.jpg
    Figure 4
    Note: Figure 4 assumes you've added the Windows WPA Client Update. If you haven't downloaded and installed it, you probably should. For more on the WPA Client Update, see Overview of the WPA Wireless Security Update in Window XP.
    • Fill in the rest of the fields, including the necessary authentication and encryption information based on the configuration of your wireless gateway.
    • Click OK and your home network will be added to the list of preferred networks.
    Now, whenever you're at home, your work laptop should automatically see your home wireless network and connect to it.

    Computer does not connect


    NEW LAPTOP? Noticed a lot of post for same Laptop as same time.
    If try to use wireless - you need to set-up wireless part of router and wireless part of laptop (Wireless Software).
    Setup your network same it is on the PC.
    Use Network setup wizard, if not know how in system manager, in the control panel.
    Network Name is same on both, MYHOUSE is good.
    The only thing different should be NAME, like SYS02,
    PC would be SYS01, and IPaddress ( first 3 sections same as PC - Last section is indivual system - example follows:
    PC = 192.168.1.40 then LT = 192.168.1.41
    Suggest you hard wire laptop to router to verify network connection then work on wireless connection setup after you get connected thru hard line.

    I hooked up wireless router for computer.....one laptop and an ipod work off the network,but i have another laptop that see's the network but does not connect.......the same laptop will connect to anyother...


    The wireless card in this other laptop needs to be configured with this router's wireless settings. It is using the other wireless router's settings and therefore cannot connect to this wireless router..
    Most wireless cards in laptops will allow you to setup different Profiles for different router's wireless settings. This will allow the laptop to connect to the different wireless routers by selecting the Profile for the wireless router you want to use.
    I suggest you name the Profile by location which will make it easy to identify the correct wireless router.

    Wireless network problem


    Hi,
    You can try deleting the wireless profile previously saved on you laptop and try to reconnect and make sure you got all your wireless settings and security with you { SSID, WEP or WPA/PSK}. If that doesnt work than try to access your router's page and change your wireless setting to OPEN Wireless and  for you to view your wireless connection and try to reconnect. If everything fails than you can try reconfigurig your router and reconnect each again for you to have your presario connected too. This wont be a prob at all . I can walk you through with it if you want to as i need more info re your pc and router setting.
    Keep me posted.
    Cheers

    your wireless devices are not configure to the right value. Start the wireless network wizard in your desktop computer.(Start- Control Panel - Network and Internet Connections - Setup a wireless network for a home or small office) Follow the on-screen instructions. After finishing, run the wizard in the router and then run it in the devices that you want to connect to the network.
