I have a home wireless b network (Linksys) . After a recent power outage, my HP laptop (about 2 years old) does not see any wireless networks any more. My older HP laptop (about 4 years old) still sees the network so I know it is not the wireless router. It worked fine prior to the outage so I am assuming it may be related. It does not seem tobe affected on any other way. All are running Win XP. TIA for your help

Need to contact the HP Tech Support Number 1-800-474-6836 and checked whether the notebok was under any recall for WLAN Card and if yes and i'm sure it would have expired then Its time to pay $259.99+ taxes and get the Motherboard replaced for you can order Linksys WUSB600N Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter worth $ 79.99 + Taxes to use Wireless Internet efficiently
Make sure that the wireless switch is on (usually indicated by a blue light).
Then go to control panel>network and sharing center>connect to a network>choose your network name>type in the security key if you have one and connect.
Alternate method: Right click on the wireless icon on the system tray at the lower right hand where the time is and choose connect to a network, choose the network name and type the security key of your network then connect.
The best way is to double click the windows wireless symbol by the clock and click preferences on the left. Open the Networks tab and the first option is a check box to use windows for wireless, check the box and click apply. Once again double click the wireless symbol and select your network.
First of all check the DSL cable must be in WAN port of the linksys router. if it is done then do the following.
Actually DSL modem and Linksys router are conflicting with their IP class. Means DSL and Linksys routers are using the same IP class of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.
You must change one's IP class because both are routers and if they having same class they cant communicate. Unplug the WAN cable of the linksys. open browser and put ip 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 any one which works for u in the address bar. Username and password hopefully be admin admin or just admin and password blank field. when you access the linksys router configuration page then come to LAN configuration. If there IP is 192.168.1.1 then change it to 192.168.0.1 and if it is 192.168.0.1 then change it to 192.168.1.1 Save configuration and reboot your laptop and plug dsl cable to linksys WAN port. Hope now this will work.
