I did not have the laptop for several months. When I attempted to connect to the net, I found it would not respond. It seems to me that there was a light that came on when it was connected. It ain't. Isn't there a button I am supposed to push? I lost the instruction book which was very good. Thanks.

Top left button, above the keyboard, is Wireless On/Off.
If nothing happens, go to CONTROL PANEL / NETWORK CONNECTIONS. R-click on Wireless Network Connection. L-click DISABLE. Wait about 5 seconds, do it again and L-click ENABLE. That should reset the modem and get things going.
After you establish an internet connection, go to START / PROGRAMS / HP / HP (SOFTWARE) UPDATES and install the latest patches. They will include aa newer version of HP Wireless Assistant

Try resetting the router by unplugging it from the outlet and from the modem.Also reset the modem by unplugging it for a few minutes also.After you do that it may take several attempts for it to reconnect with your laptop.
Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.
Compaq Presario V2000 seems to have intermittent problems with its power supply . In any case check out to see if there are any strange noises from your harddisk which you can hear if put your ear close to the laptop after switching it on .
