    No wireless on Compaq Presario V6000

    First of all, i am completely new to Ubuntu. I bought an old Compaq Presario V6000 just to try it out, but my the wireless network doesnt seem to be working. I tried all sorts of commands that you all posted here, I don't think it's helping since I see that I dont exactly have the same results as anyone. I dont know what the problem is. So it would be very much appreciated if any one could help me out. Thanks!

    Appending a post at the end of a solved thread about a different machine might not yield the best results.

    How about telling us about your wireless device? Please run and post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280
    rfkill list all
    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums A_ger21 !

    Your wireless_script report shows no wireless cards of any kind at all ! -

    Does the laptop even have one?

    You mentioned you bought an old one, maybe the card was taken out before selling it? Maybe it's fried or just loose?

    Or above all, does this model even have one? It seems that some of the models in this series come without a wireless card, e.g. V6310CA here : http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en...421.html?dnr=2

    Yours appears to be a different model (V6000-RG287UA), but I couldn't find its specs on the net. Maybe it is too outdated?

    EDIT: Okay, found a link which *may be* of the exact model you have : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...01_title_r0001
    This one seems to have a wireless card, but it is not unusual for the same model to come with different specs at different times/places. Besides, I'm not sure if this one is indeed the same as yours.

    Re: No wireless on Compaq Presario V6000

    sorry for the late reply.

    Yes this is the model (V6000-RG287UA)
    But I am not really sure if it has a wireless card. The guy said it has, but he probably wasnt telling me the truth. Is there any way for me to figure it out?

    Some laptops have a little door on the bottom for the wireless card. Does yours? What's in it?

    You could also Google the maintenance manual and take it apart (!!) and look. You could also assume that either it doesn't have one or, if it does, it's defective and just get a USB wireless.
