Compaq 610 windows 7 is unable to detect network


Click on the "Start" menu and selecting "Control Panel."Click on the icon that reads "hardware and Sound." Then, select the tab that reads "Bluetooth Devices." Click on the "Add" button. This will put your computer in "Search Mode." This means that it will search for any compatible Bluetooth devices in the area. Put your Bluetooth device in "Discovery Mode." This can be done by pressing and holding the button on the side of the device. This will cause the device to send out a signal that will be received by the laptop computer.
Select your device from the list of found devices on your laptop. Once this is done, your laptop and Bluetooth device will be permanently connected as long as they are both turned on.
Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. There should be an option to "automatically connect" when it detects the network. Look for a checkbox. create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options in the connections tab tick in the box never dial a connection below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding. Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop. From the pop-up menu select "Enable." This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver. Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard. After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection. Right-click the wireless icon again. From the pull-up menu choose to view all available wireless networks in the area. A window appears with all the networks your computer receives some sort of signal from. Select the wireless network you want access to, type in the password (if required) and click "Connect." Momentarily the laptop computer connects to the Internet.
you should be able to, it depends on the laptop, the os, the wireless adapter, and the settings .
Click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection' (or similar) and click 'enable'. right click on the network in the bottom toolbar select open network sharing center you should have the options to either connect or disconnect or set up a network connection this will vary depending on your operating system Hope this helps. b>

I am trying to set up a laptop to work via router, I alredy have this laptop connected, but it asks for my network or WEP key I think, which I don't know how to find


First of all, need to know what OS you are using, since it will make difference as to how you connect. If running WXP or W2K, then after you plug in the computer to the network, you will need to do the following:

1. Since it has not been on a network before, you wiill need to logon as a local administrator

2. Right-mopuse click on My Network places ans select PROPERTIES.

3. Right-mouse click on the LOCAL AREA CONNECTION icon ans select PROPERTIES. Select the TCP/IP option, then select PROPERTIES. Use either the DHCP option or the Static IP option depending on what your network is using (check with your network administrator). Use the ADVANCED tab to configure any DNS or WINS options. Close back to the Local Area Connection Ico area.

4. Make sure that nothing is highlighted, then slect the Network Identification Option (this is also avaialble under the Advanced Tab in the pull-down menues). Follow the steps to add the system to the network. You will need to have permissions to be able to add a copmuter onto the domain. If you don't have those permissions, then you will need to have someone with those permissions add the system for you.

I recently purchased an HP Laptop for my wife. We currently have the HP Destktop. The desktop has wireless. How do I network the laptop? What do I need to make it happen?


First thinks first. Every computer must be connected with your router (with wire or wireless) in order to send and receive files either to the internet or to the other computer. In other words takes no difference if the desktop is wireless or with wire connected.
I assume that you know your wi-fi details (network name or SSID and password). Enable the wi-fi reception at the laptop's side. There must be a switch or a key combination (for example Fn + F2) for that. Soon your computer will prompt you that there are available networks at your area. Choose yours and the laptop will ask for the password. Type it (take care for the capitals and the o - letter / 0 - zero number) and soon the connection will be established.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

May 2008 domain controller is up and running but i cannot join it with my windows 7 laptop, "domain path not found"


Ah this is an easy one, make sure the laptops MAC address (this can be found by going into the laptops command line and typing 'ipconfig /all') Then you need to go into Doman users and computers (active directory) and add that MAC address to the computers group.
If this doesn't work...make sure your laptop is connecting through the same network. use the cmd line tool Ipconfig /all to find out the ip address of your server and your laptop. If your laptop's default gateway doesn't match that of your server's...you could be cross networking. Try the "ping" command like this go to the command line on your laptop and type Ping <ip address for server> if you can ping it, you can connect with it....also check your group policy that enables wireless connections.

I have installed my Range Plus Router and I am trying to add my wireless laptop to the system and connect my printer to the laptop I am lost


Hey,

its a pretty complicated process, I'm sure one of our experts could guide you on a live chat session.

but basicly, you need to connect the laptop to the same network as the others are connected to, have a look at the settings from the computer that is already connected to the wireless network and then use the same settings on the laptop, network name etc.


The printer.. it debends.

I'm sure one of our experts can assist you in more detail in a live chat session.

You can also contact geeksquad maybe they could come over and set it up for you.

Thanks,
Ekse

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

How do I add second laptop to router Wireless G


Does the second laptop have wireless capability and is it enabled? If so, when you turn the computer on it should offer to connect as soon as it sees the wireless network. If you have WEP or WPA encryption enabled on the router, you will have to enter the passcode into your laptop.
