Having problems with your Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook ?

How can I install the wireless network adaptor on my laptop?


Answers :

Hello,

The installation of wireless network adapter on your

PC is very easy.

I will try to explain how to go about the two parts

involved, i.e the hardware installation part and the

software installation part.

1.) Hardware

To install the hardware part, get a screwdriver,

unscrew the back of your notebook where you see a

symbol drawn that looks like a small rectangular

card. After doing this, you should see two wires that

has a form of hollow pin at the tip.It is always of two

colours, which are black and grey.

Next, get a technician or got to a compute store and

tell them you need a WiFi Card.

Make sure you specify that it is 54G or 108G card

you want.

After getting this chip, insert it into the available slot

provided for WiFi card on your system.

Then Connect the Black Wire to the Mains terminal,

and the Grey wire to the Aux terminal.

Then power on your system.

2.) Software

After you on your system, you should see "New

Hardware found", if you have the driver for the WiFi

Card, then insert it into the CDROM and select "do

not connect to the internet.

Click on next and under the CDROM/Floppy" try to

navigate to where the driver is on the CDROM.

then click on next and follow on-screen instructions

3.)Incase you have installed the adapter before, do

this:

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System

first,

(For WIndows XP)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties-->Hardware-->Device Manager,



select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",


This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



(For WIndows Vista)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, go to



Properties-->>Device Manager, select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",



This will also bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.



It should connect like that.



Try this out and kindly let me know how it goes,



Hope this helps.



Thank you for using Fixya.


Goodluck
