Not only does Wi-Fi have to be on, but it has to be connected to a wireless access point (sometimes called a wireless router), and the wireless access point has to be properly connected to the internet.If the wireless access point/router has empty ports on it, plug your computer into one of those ports, and see if you can connect to ther internet then. If you can, the problem is somewhere between the wireless access point/router and the computer. Could be the transmitter part of the wireless router, could be the wireless network adapter on your computer, or could be the driver that runs the wireless adapter on the computer. If you cannot access the internet when you plug into the wireless ap/router, then you need to go one step "upstream." This would likely be the cable modem or DSL modem. Plug directly into that with your computer, and reboot both the modem and the computer (just unplug the power from the modem and then plug it back in to reboot the modem). If you can connect to the internet then, the problem is the wireless router/ap. If you cannot connect to the internet then, contact your ISP.
There are no paricular internet drivers, all you have to do is connect the laptop at the modem - router (either with the wireless connection or with the ethernet one) and you will get internet, assuming that the router is connected at the internet provider.

There may be many reasons for this. Please check the following things one by one.
1. If you have another known good laptop then try it with your wi-fi router. See if the wi-fi router is able to connect to the internet
2. If you don't have another laptop then use an ethernet cable (RJ45) cable to connect to the wi-fi router. See if this helps.
3. While connected with the wi-fi router see if you can access the router. open any internet browser and type 192.168.0.0. you should get the router page. If you don't get then you have to configure the router first.
4. Check the internet settings of your browser. There will be "internet options" or similar in the menu of your browser. Click that. In the GUI you will get "connections" tab. Click that and select the proper wi-fi setup.

How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 18.104.22.168" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.
Adding a browser should not effect your internet access. Do you still have your old browser? Does it work? Have you accessed your network connections and checked to see the condition of your connection? Did you configure your browser to work on your connection? --On your browser click TOOLS and go to internet options. --Check the CONNECTIONS tab --Click LAN SETTINGS --Check the box that says "automatically detect settings" --Uncheck any other box. If this does not work, u need to provide more info about your network settings.
Damn you should have an internet connection first. Then buy a modem or a internet card (for broadband or any other type). Install the drivers. Goto start then control panel\network and internet connection and create an internet connection depending on the type you subscribe.
Or alternately don't do anything ask the customer care to setup it for you.
