    Hey, I didn't quite get it. Are you trying to connect your Compaq laptop to the iPhone which acts as a WiFi hotspot?

    i've had similar problems with desktop pc.1 way that fixed it was going to network & sharing, adapters and deleting the wifi then going to connect to network finding it & connecting to wifi using wifi password and all seems fine (Just make sure you have the password before trying it).
    drivers are free & tech guys charge a fortune and make things sound complicated,most the stuff you can do yourself if you have the time and a bit of knowledge (sites like afterdawn will give you the knowledge).

    There could also be something wrong on the iPhone side. Did you try some general troubleshooting on the iPhone (i.e. cold-resetting the device)?
