Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

Wireless won't enable?

I can't get the wireless enabled. Whenever I click HP Wireless Assistant it says I have to go to the Windows Device Manager and when I do, I can't find the wireless. All there is in the Network Adapters is ''NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Networking Controller'' I enabled Rx and Tx but it still doesn't work.

    Even better buy a Cat5/6 ethernet cable
    plug it in and use it. easy as eating apple pie. no magic to run that.
    for 10x better speed too. in most cases.
    try it and not use wifi,
    we use it as a backup here only. for CELLS
    every room in my home has giglan jacks.
    and wifi with 3 zones/
    there are more choices
    buy 3/4g card(dongle, usb) and use that?

SOURCE: General Networking question

lets see here, your NVIDIA thing is for your ethernet port in your computer.

the wireless PCI adapter, is well, a wireless adapter, its used to connect your wireless, and a 1394 Net Adaptor Connection is basically Win2k/XP's way of telling you that you have a Firewire interface installed in your system.

so, if your going wireless, you dont need NVIDIA, and as your device manager shows that it has a red x on it, it shows that its disabled. as for everything else, i wouldent worry about it.

To turn on and enable the wireless device, do the following:

  1. To turn on the wireless device, simply move the switch to the on position. On some computers, the switch is actually a touch point on the panel above the keyboard.

Need to enable wireless adapter on hp compzaq 6710b laptop


Can you check to show whether your wireless adapter is showing up in Device Manager? (Go to Control Panel if you don't know where to find Device Manager) Your wireless card should show up under Network Adapters. If it does not, check your unidentified devices for "Unidentified NIC" or something like that.

If you do see it as an unidentified device, visit the HP site's support section to download the latest drivers for it.

If it is listed in the correct section, make sure it is enabled by right clicking its name and selecting enable. (This option will not be visible if it is already enabled)

If it is identified and enabled, try to uninstall and reinstall HP Wireless Assistant.

If none of those work, you may have a hardware issue and you should gather your warranty and support information and give HP a call.

How to enable bluetooth on my hp pavilion dv7


link to driver if not installed alredy

if driver installed :


Check that your PC has a built-in Bluetooth device by consulting its user guide. If it does not, you'll need to buy an external receiver often referred to as a "dongle" and connect it to a spare USB port.

Ensure that your wireless and Bluetooth receiver is turned on. Touch the antenna symbol next to your PC's volume control. It will turn blue when it's on and amber when it's off.

Go to the "Control Panel" from the start menu and select "HP Wireless Assistant" if you're using XP. You'll need to go via "Network and Internet" if you're running Vista or Windows 7.

Make sure your Bluetooth adapter is enabled. If you get a warning that it's not, click on "Windows Device Manager," right-click on your Bluetooth device and select "Enable."

Go back to the "HP Wireless Assistant" window and press the "Turn on" button next to the Bluetooth icon if it's not already showing as being activated. Your Bluetooth device is now on and you're ready to connect to another enabled unit.

I keep getting an error message indicating that my wireless device is disabled. It's a HP mini. for work serial CNF0260923. HP MIni 210 - 1076NR


If you get that message, believe it.
You will have to enable it either through the software switch or a little switch that some computer manufacturers place on the computer case.
The first thing you can do is open your network connections and see if you can see the wireless connections. If it says disabled, you might be able to right-click on it and enable it.
You can also look in the control panel to see if the HP wireless assistant can be accessed through there (or possibly through the programs list).

If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.
