Re: wireless shows connection,but will not connect.
This kind of problem occur due to dhcp disable in the wireless router for the security purpose. So try to give the ip adress manually by right clicking on the wireless and give the ip adress of the same range in which your network in working e.g 192.168.1.0 is the range of your ip addresses so please select the ip which is not been used by any other computer and than in default gateway enter the ip address of you wireless router and you will be able to access the internet on your system.

The steps are the same though the menus and screens you go through to do them are a bit different from XP. Pretty much all the software steps you can do are covered by the troubleshooter in vista and 7 though, so if you have ran that without a solution, then the likelyhood that it's a setting in windows causing the issue is fairly low.
First I would confirm that your connection is actually working. If you are attempting to connect the laptop with wireless it is not uncommon for routers to stop responding correctly to wireless clients, or even for the wireless portion of a router to die while wired connections still work perfectly. Try plugging the laptop in with a wire and see if you still have the same problem. If wired worked but wireless did not, then unplug your router, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in. Retry the wireless and if it still does not work then a replacement router will be required to use wireless, though you could get a second cable and use it wired until you do replace it.
When you look at the Manage Network Connections link on the Network and Sharing Center you do not see Local Area Connection? Do you see Wireless Network connection? You need to check the device manager to see if the card has been disabled.
It should show two entries with no red or yellow marks. One for wireless (WLAN) and one for wired (Ethernet)
