Wireless :: How To Know If Compaq Presario 2200 Has Wifi
May 31, 2011
I'm pretty computer illiterate. So how do I know if my Compaq Presario 2200 has wifi? I've read several threads but. I don't have the computer in front of me but I believe there is no wifi button. Do I buy a PC card or a wireless networking adapter - USB? Where does the PC card go? Will I also need a driver?
I purchased a Netgear wireless box for my boyfriend a couple months back and we have just recently set it up. My iPad and laptop connect with no problem at all but his mother's computer, the Compaq, won't connect to the internet unless it's directly connected to the router/modem.
I've gone to the support section of the Netgear website and tried what they told me but I keep running into needing to log on to my router. The default password isn't working and neither is the one we tried to set up (really my bf tried to set one and somehow managed to screw up the whole thing; I just went to bed cause I was happy we even had wireless).
My wireless on my computer won't hold a connection for any longer than 30 minutes. I've checked the drivers, the wireless router, and scanned for viruses (several times) but nothing seems to work. In the last three months, I think I only had one occasion where the connection remained stable for longer than an hour. It doesn't matter what router I use or where I am. It has to be my computer.
I have a Compaq Presario CQ57 and I have had it for about 6 months.
Laptop getting only limited wireless access via Centurytel. I have other wireless devices which are able to connect to my home network with no issues. I have disconnected and connected anew as well as unplugged both the router and the laptop and the connection does not execute to allow full access.
I have a Compaq presario CQ61 laptop running windows 7 and since my boyfriend installed a new netgear wireless router I haven't been able connect to the home wireless network. I have no problem connecting to public or private wireless networks at my house or elsewhere. Also, my boyfriend and his roommate have no problem connecting to the network on their laptops. It is a WPA encrypted network. I have also tried shutting off the firewall on my computer without any change. My laptop doesn't even recognize the network - i tried to manually add the network to my computer but it still won't come up on my list of active networks.
I have a Compaq presario CQ62 Laptop. The other day, my friend accidentally spilled water on my laptop keys. The computer works perfectly fine except for the keyboard. I tried replacing the keyboard but it did not work. Anyways, For some strange reason my wireless capability was turned off and now I have no way of turning it back on. I have searched many forums but have not found an answer.
Q: Is there any way to turn on the wireless capability i.e. using the function keys to turn on the wireless radio, WITHOUT actually using the function keys? i.e. using a command or something within the computer?
I have a Compac Presario w/Vista and I'm getting a limited connectivity message and can't access the internet. My cable modem is connected straight to the computer by ethernet wire. It happened before and I unistalled the Vista update and it was fine. I can't see what the problem is this time cause my Event log won't come up saying that the Snapin for the MMC isn't properly loading. I am able to see alerts but there wasn't any on that date. My Norton's won't come up either stating that the side by side configuration isn't right.
so I went into device manager and deleted the 2 network adapters, rebooted and let Windows reinstall. Windows created a new Local Area Connection (LAC4, 2 and 3 are gone). It reads limited or no connectivity and is using Linksys LNE 100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter, just like the previous LAC2. The previous LAC3, which used the WAN Network Driver never got reinstalled. I don't get it.Since a Linksys adapter on a wired connection seemed bizarre I tried to find what the correct network driver should beI Googled "Compaq Presario 5400US" "ethernet driver" OR "network driver" and was taken to an HP drivers page, which This page has nothing listed for chipset or network adapters
Old Compaq Presario 3000+ getting sluggish, freezing has Compac mouse and keyboard. So brother gave me not as old eMachine. Thought I'd use KVM and play music, etc from old Compaq. KVM hooked up. Compaq keyboard works very poorly with eMachine. Compaq mouse doesn't work at all with eMachine -freezes center of screen. Switch to wireless mouse, works fine with eMachine, but then have ot use Compaq mouse if I switch to Compaq PCU. Is there a universal keyboard and mouse that would fix this?
I have a compaq Presario CQ 60 windows vista 32 bit. I cannot connect to my centurytel westell 7500. I was able to connect to the westell versalink 327W but when I upgraded to the 7500 I havnt been able to connect wirelessly. I can with the Ethernet but not wirelessly. My wifi network adapter is a atheros AR5007 802.11b/g.
My sister's Compaq Presario CQ62 Laptop, and from what she told me, she can't access the internet. When she can access, it's only with Internet Explorer.
She couldn't register Microsoft Office, use Avast, use Firefox, use Chrome, install updates, and access the iTunes store to name a few examples.
She was able to run MalwareBytes, but no infections were found.
I don't think it's the router, because my sister is also my roommate and I can access the internet just fine, as well as gaming consoles and iPods. But I don't know, maybe it is the router and I'm just not realizing it.
I'm trying to figure out the problem, but it's just not coming to me. I guess she's had this problem since October 2010. I thought it might be an IP address issue, so I reserved an IP address to her, but it appears that nothing changed.
My compaq presario F750us stopped connecting to the internet both wired and wireless. It no longer recognizes its Artheros Ar 5700 wireless adapter. The ethernet connection is restricted to local access only. The notebook runs Windows Vista Home Premium. I have followed all diagnostic and repair steps as per Vista's instructions. Two other computers remain connected. The router is Linksys Wrt 54 G2 V1.
So on my compaq presario cq60-204nr i tried connecting to my router with the correct security code and everything and it just kept saying failed to connect due to time out is there anything? and now it says the wireless security settings on my computer don't match those on my router?
My son has Compaq Presario C700 (C769US) with an Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g wifi adapter. I can connect his lapatop to our Motorola SBG 6580, but then cannot connect to the internet. I get the error that the DNS lookup failed. I have looked everywhere on the HP site, and have talked to the Motorola people. I can't download an updated driver without the internet (I don't think)
I have an issue with my girlfriend's Compaq Presario A900. We have recently had a new Wireless router and the laptop was working fine going online then one day it wouldn't connect.The laptop is connecting to the router although it is showing as an unidentified network and access as local only. All other PC's and laptops in the house are connecting fine and using the internet.I have see this question asked on other forums but as i mentioned i'm not very tech savvy and i can't seem to get anything to work.

I have a compaq presario V6500 laptop running windows vista SP2. For the past few days i am not able to connect to the internet using ethernet port. But my wireless still works.On checking device manager, my network adapter, a nVidia nForce networking controller#2, gives the following error.
My Compaq Presario V2000 (HP) using Win-xp3 will only connect to the internet using safe mode. When trying to connect in normal mode a message appears saying I cannot display webpage and what I can try is diagnose connection problems. When I click on diagnose problems it tells me that Windows cannot troubleshoot network connection because an error has occured.
I have a compaq preario running on windows 7 ultimate.It has been working well with the internet connection but recently it stopped connecting to the internet.It recognizes other computers in the network but the internet connection is not available.
I have an ancient Compaq V2410 notebook which has started to drop my home Wifi connection recently (started about a week ago). At first, I thought it was the install of Firefox 8 as it froze and crashed but it happens with Chrome, IE and even when not running a browser.
My ISP is O2 in the UK and I have a DSL2+ service with the O2 Wireless Box II. I have gone through a power down cycle on the router and it continues to work with my ethernet-connected desktop PC. I have changed the Wireless Card in the notebook but fault is still intermittent. The notebook was also set to OpenDNS servers but that has been set back to Automatic DNS servers.
The notebook has the latest free versions of Avast Anti-virus & Comodo Firewall and the main issue is that the notebook has 640Mb system RAM which means that various Windows services have been Disabled or set to Manual.
I can sometimes recover the Wifi signal by switching the wireless on/off but it is sporadic. I have attached the Xirrus WiFi screenshots at startup, at fault state and at recovery state together with the ipconfig.txt output.
I have a Netgear DGN2200 and a BT Home Hub V1 and wish to use my Netgear as the WBS and the Home Hub as a repeater. I have set both up, and the Home Hub finds the Netgear and recognises it as a WBS (I think) but cannot get internet through my Homehub at all.
I have a dell inspiron 2200 (old, I know!) It had wireless when I was given it, but the computor programme was updated to Ubuntu, then back to windows, and now the icon has dissapeared. I don't have the manual, and I have no clue about how to get it back...b
I switched to Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200 BG by mistake and now I can't get connected through my wireless! I did not mean to do this, but I have not been able to switch back to Windows to control my wireless.
