Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless network problem

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!

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

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.)

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.

OK to mix and match? Have Linksys router and a Belkin wireless G mimo ... Not sure how to hook any of it up?


How many computers/printers/etc are you trying to put on the network? If this is a home network, it's probably unnecessary to have 2 routers. Also, if you're only using the wireless router for laptops to connect to wirelessly, you should consider dropping the Linksys out of the network completely. On how to hook the two together, though, it really depends on what you're trying to do.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)

Wireless adapter not showing up in network conections,icon


This happened to me when I had to install a wireless router in my house using my laptop to initialize the network for the first time.
The start up software messed with my settings for wireless detection on my laptop. It turned off the automatic detect for wireless networks in the
"Wireless Zero Configuration"
(This has the settings for the 802.11 wireless adapters
i.e. the one that comes with the R4000 presario)

to get to this hit start>run...
and type in this:
%SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s

go to "Wireless Zero Configuration" and enable automatic startup
, if the service is stopped, start it.
hit the apply button to save your settings.

Connection problems


Hi,
Your query "is there anyway...remove...wireless network connections 1-8 ...solely on 3?"

In your Device Manager, delete all instances of the wireless network connection except # 3.

However in WinXP, the default setting of the Device Manager is to  hide certain devices (like printers, non plug & play devices and removable devices not currently installed/connected).

In your Device Manager, pls click on "View", check "Show Hidden Devices." Thus enabled, all hidden devices (whether multiple or not) will now be displayed.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
