Who's card , makers name and model
if HP then get HP drivers for it, we are not HP we are fixya.
no relationship to HP at all,
if not HP card, then get the driver from its maker.
no OS stated
no card stated, so answers are impossible.
nor who's drivers you installed
nor if connected via ETHERNET , W7 and W10 will try to get the drivers online
if running XP or VISTA ,those are now dead. MS does not support XP nor VISTA or old OS , at all.

the 2100 is retired now, at HP, zero support
that means the HP driver page is missing now.
i came with no WIFI new, at all
only thisl
1 x modem - phone line - RJ-11
1 x network - Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - RJ-45

so did you buy USB /WIFI dongle ?
and plug it in to the USB slot?
my wild guess yes.
so who made this custom device.
find that out and go to their web site and get the driver
that matches your unstated OS.

if running W7 up,
use the ehternet cable to get the driver or list W7 find it using Plug and play.
ethernet cable direct to ROUTER.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: HP DV6000 no wireless internet

Hard to say when I dont know the exact model.

If it is an Atlantis(DV6000-6499) it is most likely the mainboard, and it might be coverd by an extended warranty.

If it is an Ares(DV6500-6999) you should try updatigng th BIOS first. If that doesnt help i would go for another WLAN card. It might also be a defective mainboard, but that doesnt happen as often on Ares models as Atlantis.

I need the driver 802.11b/g wireless


I'm assuming this card comes built it with the Compaq Presario C500 notebook. In that case, a possible driver for this card could be:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3318986&prodNameId=3413015&swEnvOID=2093&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ob-52447-1 (Windows Vista/7)
Due to lack of information, or the age of the card itself, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of this driver

Need Network Controller 4 both Compaq Presario 2100 2500 Laptops


You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.

Hi,i have a hp g6000 laptop with a compaq f700 motherboard fitted.the laptop works fine,but does not recognise the dual core processor or wireless card(not show in device manager with wireless button on or...


The reason it shows the compaq logo is because that is the motherboard you have installed. HP is just your case if I am reading your question properly. Did you custom build this? Which processor is in it? Probably the wireless card isn't being recognized because of your 64 bit operating system. Windows 7 has a lot of hardware driver problems right now.

Compaq presario 2100 how to install a Wireless pci card


If there is no antenna then you'll have to buy the wire set via eBay, take apart the lcd, remove the top assembly of the laptop and then run them through the computer and put everything back. NOT FUN.

It's probably much easier and realistic to just purchase a usb wireless card.

Hope this info helps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

HP Presario V3000 internal wireless card not recognized


what OS? (means operating system)? we cant guess it...
xp/vista/w7/w8/w10,? what?
is it same OS as day 1 new?
xp, does it have service pack 3 installed? if not, it wont work right.
ever.
if yes, XP did you install all drivers for this PC from HP.com
oops they are gone...
try to know that drivers for chips below the card must be good first.
3 years old to you?
it not a 3 year old model at all. its a dead product with a square screen,.'

its an old COMPAQ, 2006 , is my guess on DATE.
looks like it has VISTA.
Vista support ended this month
and support is gone to on V3000 at HP.
if you dig deep using HP, Google site searches some lingering elements remain.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01037981.pdf

like that .
the time to get DRIVER is before its 10 years old
HP, dumps them at 10, or soon after that.

find a newer lap top that has wide screen and upgraded
it give this to the goodwill. (in fact they have newer ones cheap)

it is a COMPAQ 2006 (HP bought them out LONG AGO)

System: Compaq presario 2100 Intel. Disassembled the computer to fix the battery/power jack that is connected to the motherboard. My pcmcia/CISCO wireless card is not working since I fixed the computer,...


You can try using Compaq Diagnostics for Windows 95/98 for your model, there is no PCMCIA driver available on HP website for this computer.

If this is not a software problem, then it is probably a bad soldering joint that lost contact on one or more of the PCMCIA motherboard contacts.

Dell C640 wireless not working


I used Everest home edition to find the wireless drivers for my DELL C640 laptop.   The wireless card in it is an  ntel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B MiniPCI Adapter (IBM). I've downloaded the wireless driver from Intel's website, here: 
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=944&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional〈=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!#DRI
It's the 3rd result in that search page. If the link doesn't work, simply search for Intel® PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection on Intel's site. 
That Dell C640 wireless driver works fine for me, I'm using the wireless card to type this :)    
good luck!
