The computer will not connect to the internet via the internal nic card and the sound doesn't work. I have tried re-installing the drivers but cannot connect to the internet or get the light which indicates a sound problem to go off. I just cleaned the machine up after it was attacked by the pcprivacy virus.

Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)
If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA. Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter. If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.
Im not sure what kinda modem you have ..but I think if you connect it via usb you need to install the driver for it ...so ..if you have a driver cd ..run it and make it be seen by the computer ..Usually the modem can run without driver but only on the network port in the network card ..This explains why the phone works and not the internet connection itself..Either use it in the Lan card port ..and make the settings you need for the network ...by log into it using it's IP address in the browser ...or install the driver and try to connect it by usb ..
please try to reinstall the nic driver and get the static
IP if any and if it didn't work ... you can try a new NIC to
USB network card or by trying to connect through the wifi ..
It looks as though this is equipped with a Broadcom WLAN card.
Try going to this link for HP/Compaq put in the required information for product number then click on software/driver downloads. then follow the steps for installing the driver. That should do the trick after a clean install of the operating system.
Hmm, i think the best card, or its not realy a card, its a "dongel", is a 3G Mobile dongel. You can use it wereever you are as long as you have a mobile signal.
You just connect it to your laptop via USB, make the settings for the the mobile broadband and VIOLA! you can use internet anywere!
Instructions and settings you will get together whit the "dongel" when u buy one.
Hi,,for your own security,,i would suggest that you do not put the serials of your computer up on the internet. As to your problem, if you can use someone else's computer with a CD burner,,,you can go to the HP Compaq web site and download all the drivers that you need. and then transfer them to your laptop. Also,,if you can access the internet from your laptop,,you can download the drivers from HP
hi there, need some more info. but have u tried putting a DNS address on your wireless nic.... and what type of wireless router are you using???... and please give details on your wireless router config...
Hi, Just to make sure im understanding the situation properly - you have a laptop and connect to the internet through a wireless network right? And then when you go to open up internet explorer or whatever program you use it basically says you're not connected to the internet.
It does sound like your wireless card has gone bad but when you say that it still has the icon down the bottom of the screen telling you that you're connected to the network, it sounds like it could be something else. It could be a range of things from there though, there are some viruses that corrupt something called the LSP and when that is broken it has the same symptoms as you described. Also it could just be a setting in your anti-virus. I know that Kaspersky Internet Security suite has a problem with its anti-hacker function that blocks internet from working like that.
Try disabling all of your anti-virus / firewall programs and then accessing the internet. If that works then its only a small problem. If it doesnt work and the icon is still there saying you are connected to the wireless then there is a small program to try running called LSP Fix, available at:
Other than that i'm out of ideas. Changing the wireless network card in a laptop does sound challenging though.
