Hi,

I would really like help on connecting my laptop to my wireless network....I'm sure my notebook Is built-in wireless.

Here are the information about the network cards:
Model:
Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC - Packet Scheduler Miniport
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN - Packet Scheduler Miniport

I have tried reinstalling all my drivers but nothing happens....my laptop is a Compaq Presario M2000


I dont know whether or not i need to buy something that can make it go wireless so I hope someone could give me some suggestions...

Thank you

Jimmy

could you please give more detail of what exactly is happening like what error messages are you geting

ok i will start by saying im no computer I.T or anything but

try downloading unible driver scanner its not free but worth ago. if you can't work out the problem with your wireless card thats inbulit like most of them are. you can buy ones that just plug in to the side of your laptop in the express port get one from dse (dick smith) thats where you go.

It may not be the wireless card it maybe your router may not be configerd right try calling your ISP for support.

sorry i couldn't give much information....I dont think it is the built in wireless card that's broken...since i have never been wireless on the laptop before....When i right click on the wireless icon i go to 'Repair' and it goes through  this procedure until it reaches "connecting to the wireless network" something like that and suddenly says it cant get pass that... maybe i need to update the driver on compaq website?

I have searched the web alot of people seems to have problems like this.....could you tell me how you went wireless on your notebook?

Thanks
