If you have setup a security on the router so that a password is needed to access you will need to enter it. If you don't remember, then there should be a small reset hole on the router. Put in a small pin or pencil and hold it in for a few seconds and release. all the lights will proboably come on then do it's reboot cycle. Be sure to read and understand the steps you go through during setup. One of the questions will deal with encryption. Just leave it blank or do not put incryption. The chance of someone using your connection via your router are slim and none. Also by having no encryption will give you a slightly quicker connection speed too.

Your problem may appear from a not properly enabled WLAN card.
Make sure the Wi-Fi swithc is in ON position and on your laptop keyboard try the FN+F8 combination to have displayed the wireless card status. The WLAN card has to be ENABLED to be able to connect to the Internet. The combination done will make appear on your display a window with some options available; choose that option that enables your wireless card.
Also check in your computer's DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is working properly. To do so follow these simple steps:
1. START and click on SYSTEM;
2. in SYSTEM option click on DEVICE MANAGER;
3. on DEVICE MANAGER option go at NETWORK ADAPTERS and see if there your wireless card is indicated and it shows that it is working PROPERLY;
4. if an UNKNOWN DEVICE is indicated then try to find the right driver for you notebook model and WLAN card model;
5. install the driver then REBOOT and recheck in DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is displayed properly this time.

I have not used my laptop for a while and when i came to use it my wireless connection wont work i have a netgear virgin system installed.


Check in the device manager if your computer is seeing the wireless card driver.
Right click my computer, properties, hardware, device manager,network adapters.
Is the wireless card listed?
If it is right click uninstall and reboot on reboot the wireless card should be seen as new hardware follow the wizard and let it install the driver.
If the computer is seeing the card but it has a yellow mark next to it the driver is not loaded you need to get the appropriate driver for that type of card from it's support site or once again try the uninstall reboot.
That’s the wireless card.
Is the net-gear showing an internet connection.
Put a cat 5 cable from your laptop to the net-gear and try to connect via cable if that works it's got to be the wireless card driver or the wireless settings in the net-gear however if they worked previously there is no reason to suspect the router settings.
Hope this helps

Can't connect to internet


You are using an air card AND a network card? If this is the case, it sounds like your cards(or more specific the software) are battling for who gets internet access.

Or do you mean your air card is a wireless card? If you just have a single wireless device attached then check with your device manager and make sure everything is detected(right click on my computer, go to properties, go to devices/hardware, go to device manager). If anything is missing, or has the yellow triangle exclaimation point, then there is something wrong with your drivers.

If everything is working, then it might just be a simple wrong network setting. By default it might be trying to connect to the wrong wireless network. click on your networking device, click on connect to a network and then make sure you are attempting to connect to the right network. If you can't see your network, then there might be a problem with your router or router's settings.

Unable to connect to the Internet


Check to see if your wireless card is displayed under “Network Adaptors” in “Device Manager”. You can access the "Device Manager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If it is detected and there are no alerts or errors, try uninstalling the wi-fi card, reboot the laptop and reinstall the drivers.

No Wireless Connection


Let’s check the Wi-Fi card on your PC. Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed under the Network Adaptors. If not, make sure the Wi-Fi card shows up under Network Adaptors. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.
If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc…
