Hi , you need to go into your router settings and see if you have it set correctly , 2nd- check your firewall settings to make sure there are ok .................let me know if this works , if not we will go into more detail in the network settings .........................Good luck Roy
In case of 2 wire router the security key is on the back side of the router. if you turn it upside down you will find 10 digit number. That might be your security key for the wireless network. if network key is not there or it is not working then you will need to open the setup page of the router and find out the network key. if you have any computer connected to the router then use that computer to find out the network key.
Is your laptop able to connect to other networks? If so, your router maybe at fault. Reset the router, if it still doesn't work, you may need a new router. If your laptop has issues connecting to other networks, the wifi radio in your laptop may need to be replaced.
Verify if your wireless option on the router is enabled.
Also when you setting the wireless on the router, be sure that channel is not on automatic. Specify a channel number. After that try to connect again to wireless
Wireless Troubleshooting Checklist
1. Unplug power from Router and Modem for 3 mins.
2. Restart computer.
3. Make sure your wireless device is active:
a. Verify that your wireless device is turned on. Some laptops have a physical hardware switch located on the case. Make sure this is in the ‘On’ position. Other laptops use a Function Key combination (e.g. Dell uses Fn+F2, IBM uses Fn+F5)
b. Open Network Connections (from the System Tray or from the Control Panel). Verify that your wireless Connection is Enabled. If not, right-click on your wireless connection and select ‘Enable.’
4. Renew your connection. Changes elsewhere on the network can sometimes knock out your connection. To reconnect quickly, click Start, Run in XP (or press the Windows key in Vista), type ipconfig /renew, and press Enter.
5. Check for interference. Have you installed any new wireless devices (speakers, baby monitors, ect)? If so unplug them.
Make sure your wireless network has a unique name (ssid).
5. If other wireless devices can connect to your router and only your computer can't.
a. Try deleting your wireless profile. If you are using the built in wireless for windows go to Control Panel> Network Connections right click on Wireless Network Connection and select View Avaliable Networks. On the left hand side under Related Tasks click on "Change the order of preferred networks" select your network name and click remove. Now try reconnecting to it. Be sure to type in the correct security key.
b. Disable your software firewall.
6. If you can connect to the router but not the internet.
a. Click Start > Run type CMD into the box and click OK to open a command prompt.
At the prompt type netsh winsock reset catalog This will Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults
When the first one is done tyoe this netsh int ip reset reset.log This will Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults
Reboot the machine.
b. Change the name of your wireless network (SSID)
c. Change the wireless security key and or wireless security type. Some devices are not compatible with the WPA encription.
be sure to use a HEX password Hex is 0-9 and A thru F only. The Hex key must be exactly 10 characters long for WEP64, or 26 characters long for WEP128. If you're using 5 characters or 13 characters, it's really ASCII, not HEX.

Check the ip addres of your pc. You might be having an ip of 169.x.x.x(that means limited or no connectivity). If this is the case, you were not able to completely connect to your wireless network because your network is secured. Try to connect to your wireless network again and make sure you enter your correct network key. When you check ip address again you should have an ip of 192.168.x.x(depending on your router's ip)
