Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Hi, mum bought a compaq presario C700 notebook and I was able to set her up on the internet via ethernet cable, but I am not sure how to set up the notebook wireless. Do I need an external aerial or should it work by itself. If it will work wirelessly by itself, how do I set it up, I have had a quick look and tried to set up but it will not find the router.
Thanks in advance
You need to buy a wireless router to connect to your laptop. For example the Linksys wifi router it's easy to setup just run the cdrom install in follow the instruction. and also you can setup or configure it by webase configuration of router. Just type to the internet browser IP 192.168.1.1 if the user name appears just type admin and password sometimes admin also or 1234

I have a Linksys SRX200 router that has problems with the wireless. A wired connection works fine (and connects through my satellite to the Internet). However, the wireless connection is undetected by any of my notebook PCs (several different machines). Once in a while, the wireless seems to come up, but it only stays up for a minute or two and then goes back down. I've rebooted the router to factory defaults, but that didn't help any.
Yes, it did work before. In fact, it was working during the day, but then when I tried to use it in the evening it started failing. I tried talking with someone at Linksys, to no avail. Although I did say it had been working, he didn't seem to get th ... PC Desktops
