    Wireless internet connection?
    How can I setup a wireless internet connection between my home computer and my Compaq Laptop?

    I have a linksys Wireless-B broadband router and my laptop was once connected to the linksys router wireless,

    But my laptop just shut off and then I had to get it fix, now when I try to connect it to the router it won't work,
    I know it had wireless built in but when I check my network adapters,

    It doesn't say that I have a wireless connection. Does that mean that I may have lost it? I used it before but every since my computer broke I can't git my internet to work wireless. Please help

    Do you have the original installation disc?

    Many times when a computer is reformatted, you have to manually re-load some of the drivers. I suspect you need to do this for your wireless card.
