The on and off button for the wireless adapter is located on the top middle (above the keyboard). The button appears as an antennea and has a blue light when it is active (not necessarily connected) and an orange light when off (disabled).

How to connect wifi wirelessly to a compaq presario 1800


Your laptop doesn't come with a wifi adapter. Buy a USB wifi adapter.
If you're still using Win ME get rid of it. Try XP or Win 7. Get the most RAM installed that you can.

I have a problem with my compaq presario cq42, i am not find out my wireless option,even i was downloaded hp wireless assistance and others driver but nothing happen. Please give me some idea!!!!!


If you can download then I expect the wireless bit is working. Try re-booting with an Ethernet lead plugged in, download the latest drivers from Hp and clicking on the downloaded name will install the driver. Ensure you choose the correct driver!

My Compaq Presario M2000 wifi light is "On", but


While logged into the router, Turn on "broadcast ssid" or tell your computer exactly what the SSID is. One form of security is to set the router not to tell other computers in wifi range what the ssid is.

I have no drivers for my compaq presario cq42.no driver is installed


Hi gem,

Which operating system are you using? What drivers are you missing when you get into "Device Manager" (assuming you're using some version of Windows?

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=4121902

Above is the link to Compaq... you have to select your specific model of CQ42 (look for the sticker under your laptop), choose your operating system and download the relevant ones.

I often install drivers with the motherboard first (most likely an Intel chipset), then all the rest such as graphics card (video drivers), audio, networking, wireless, modems, card readers, etc.

Hope this helps!

I just bought Compaq Presario CQ42 which black in color (i don't know the model exactly). i have a problem with the touchpad. i want to lock it but i didn't find the button and i don't know how to lock or...


Underneath the Laptop is a Users Label marked Model it should give the FULL model No. - e.g. Presario CQ42-100 - HP made something like 150 different models for the Presario CQ42 !!! so you can see, I'm going to have to guess about this...
If your Touchpad has a black(?) dot in the top left corner - tap this once to turn the Touchpad off while you are typing.
Touch it again, to turn it back on.
Other Presarios' have a switch nearby to do this...

Wireless internet connection problem


You need to reinstall the wireless driver for your model laptop which you can find at the hp/compaq website. Just click on the link for support and provide information on the model of your laptop and you will be redirected to the proper web page that contains all the drivers for your particular laptop. I did this when my internal wifi did not respond when I pressed the wifi button. After installing the driver everything worked great.
