    theres no more icon on the item bar on the bottom of the screen

    check your network connections in control panel. it may be disabled in there, or your power settings.

    nope, i looked into it pretty hard.
    seems that most compaq presario have done this. gotta check my receipts and check the date, i believe my warranty just expired, so i may have a nice fight ahead of me.

    bullshit.

    Troubleshooting Laptop Wireless Connections - Notebook Won't Connect To Wireless Network

    If that doesn't help it's probably a hardware failure. I was having this problem with an HP laptop, I took it apart and the antenna inside had come loose somehow. I re-soldered it and it worked perfectly.
