Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

I have a Compaq PC with Windows XP and the flat I've moved into has wireless broadband - how do I connect to it?


Answers :

You can use a wireless network to share Internet access, files,\015\012printers, and more. Or you can use it to surf the Web while you're\015\012sitting on your couch or in your yard. Plus, it's easier to install\015\012than you think.
There are 4 steps to creating a wireless network:
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\0121.
\015\012Choose your wireless equipment
\015\012\015\0122.
\015\012Connect your wireless router
\015\012\015\0123.
\015\012Configure your wireless router
\015\012\015\0124.
\015\012Connect your computers
For Windows XP users, Windows XP Service Pack 2\015\012is not required for wireless networking, but it does make things much\015\012easier. Service Pack 2 also helps protect you against hackers, worms,\015\012and other Internet intruders.

\015\012Connect your computers
If your\015\012computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your\015\012network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of\015\012your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the\015\012network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop).\015\012Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt\015\012you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen\015\012instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Note:\015\012The steps below only apply if you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2.\015\012If you're running Windows XP and you don't have Service Pack 2 yet,\015\012plug your computer into your wireless router and download and install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Windows XP should show an icon with a notification that says it has found a wireless network.
wireless_connected.gifFollow these steps to connect your computer to your wireless network:
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\0121.
\015\012Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks.\015\012If you run into any problems, consult the documentation that came with\015\012your network adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
\015\012\015\0122.
\015\012The\015\012Wireless Network Connection window should appear and you should see\015\012your wireless network listed with the network name you chose. If you\015\012don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower-right corner.
wireless_chooseconnection.gif\015\012\015\0123.
\015\012Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.
\015\012\015\0124.
\015\012Windows\015\012XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. After you're\015\012connected, you can now close the Wireless Network Connection window.\015\012You're done.
Note: If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key.
