Hi,

Most Wireless Routers by LinkSys, D-Link and NetGear are pretty good and stable. Personally, have tried LinkSys WRT54G (as a repeater), WRT300N and NetGear MR814.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the postback.

    Not necessarily but it would be to your advantage as their software would compliment each other and therefore settings and configurations would be relatively easy.

    I have used a number of D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router on some install jobs and they have proven themselves to be more than adequate and serve their purpose well.

    Cheers.

Can I purchase a wireless card to install into my Compaq Presario 5WV280 5000 series. I bought it in 2000, and it runs Windows Me. I'm pulling it out of storage for my 5 year old to use. It has...


Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

Can I hoop up a wireless router to this computer


You can hook up any computer/laptop to a wireless router via LAN cable or by wireless connection.
For a wireless connection each computer/laptop needs a wireless card and the wireless card driver installed and the wireless card needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings.

I have a new Compaq Presario desktop and and I have a satellite connection on my old one and want to hook up a Linksys wireless router and need some help. I have looked at so many sites with ways to do it...


You need to provide the model number of your Lynksys first, but more importantly you'll also need a wireless adapter for your new Presario if one isn't already installed on it or you won't be able to wirelessly access the satellite internet network through your wireless router.

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

You could try using a wireless adapter that connects through usb but the connection is not as strong. Otherwise I would try to buy an internal wireless card which is just installed into a PCI slot on your motherboard.

Hello Handbag.
The issue which you are facing is a known issue. This is common in F500 series notebooks.
You can get it repired for free of cost by contacting HP technical support, even if the notebook is out of warranty.

And check if you product is listed here. Then contact HP support by chat or email., then you can get the notebook repaired.
