Look at Device Manage, under Network Adapters, what is shown there? Any yellow marks anywhere?

Press Winkey+r, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.

Are you running Vista? If so, 32 or 64 bit?

The drivers for you laptop are here: Software & Driver Downloads - Compaq Presario C700 CTO Notebook PC

What is the complete model number of your laptop?

Presario C700xxxxxx????

The Compaq (HP actually) web site lists dozens of models. For instance:

» Compaq Presario C700 CTO Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C700LA Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C700T CTO Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C700XX Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C701LA Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C701XX Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C702LA Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C702XX Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C703LA Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C705LA Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C706NR Notebook PC
» Compaq Presario C707LA Notebook PC

All of them list a Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows Vista and not an Atheros WLAN.
