You need to ge the newest drivers for your wireless card. See if Compaq offers any wireless drivers. Another option is go to Microsoft update.

Click on Custom rather than Express install.
Look on the left and there should be a high priority tab, a software tab and a hardware tab. Click on Hardware and see if it is offering drivers for your wireless card.

While it is always best to exhaust all other options before taking such a drastic step, sometimes the only course of action available is to restore your computer to its original factory condition.
If you have a Compaq Presario F500 with a damaged operating system or extensive damage from a virus or other malware, you may have no choice but to run the restore process and bring the unit back to its original factory state.

Place the restore CD into your F500 and shut down the unit.
Power the unit back up with the CD in the drive.
The F500 automatically boots from the CD and starts the restore process.
Verify that you wish to restore the F500 to its original factory settings.
The restoration process requires your verification, since it formats the hard drive and destroys the data.
You will need to verify that you want the hard drive to be formatted.

Insert the operating system CD when prompted.
Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted.
This license key information can be found on a small tag located on the laptop itself, often on the bottom of the machine.

Reboot the F500 when the restoration process is complete.
Copy any backup files to the F500, and then connect to the Internet and download any new updates from the Windows Update site.
This process can take awhile, so it is best to install the updates when you have a large block of time available.
You should, however, download them as soon as possible to protect your computer.

It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping.

Lift up your computer and look for a tag.
The tag will probably be located on the side of the computer, or on the bottom of the unit for a laptop.
The service tag is generally a large black and white tag and it will say "Service Tag Number."
Do not confuse this tag with the Windows tag, which may be located in the same area on the computer.

If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

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:

http://cexx.org/lspfix.htm

Other than that i'm out of ideas. Changing the wireless network card in a laptop does sound challenging though.

Hope my mini-essay helps,
Daniel
