You have described the issue pretty well, however, there are some more questions which still need to be asked and we would need to go through a series of troubleshooting steps before ariving at a solution. So, I would suggest - Go to the fixya homepage and click on the free live chat link on the top right corner and whenever you see me online, just initiate a chat with me and we will carry on from there. Cheers

Can't get connected to wireless mst laptop

Here's the checklist:
  1. Make sure the wireless transceiver is turned on. Almost all laptops have a switch that lets you turn it off when not in use to conserve battery energy. The switch is usually on the front edge of the computer.
  2. Check the router protocols (for steps 2, 3, and 4, connect to the router's web page using a computer connected to the router with a network cable). If, for example, the router is using 802.11n only, and your laptop has an older wireless card (802.11b or 802.11g), they won't talk to each other. In that case, you would want to set the router to mixed protocol mode.
  3. Check the router security settings, and make sure your laptop's settings match. They should be using the same encryption (TKIP or AES), authentication type (WEP, WPA, WPA2 - WPA2 is preferred) and wireless security key/password. The laptop computer's settings are found by right-clicking the Wireless Network icon in the System Tray and selecting Properties.
  4. If the router has a limited client list, make sure the MAC address for your wireless card is properly entered on the list. If the wireless card was factory installed, the MAC address should be on a sticker on the bottom of the computer.
  5. Consider range limiting factors. If the router or laptop is located too near ductwork, metal appliances or even metal furniture framing, this could create blind spots in the broadcast patterns. Sometimes moving a few inches can make a significant difference. You can check this by right-clicking the wireless network icon in the System Tray and selecting View Available Wireless Networks. A list of networks in the neighborhood (including yours) should show the relative signal strength of each router at your location. Note that the strength of weaker signals is often highly variable - it may be different each time you refresh the view.
I think I covered everything other than hardware problems. Sometimes you can get everything matched, but the router and laptop still won't talk until you shutdown and restart both (turn the router back on first). I had a Windows Vista unit with this issue when Vista first came out - after that it never again had a connection problem with that router as far as I know.

I just recently got wireless internet. It was

Hard to say what the issue is based on the information you provided.. There are actually a lot of reasons you might have lost the connection.
I'd start by verifying that you're connected to the wireless network that you set up. Did you name it? Open your network properties and see what the icon for the wireless adapter tells you:
- Are you connected? - Are you connected to the proper network? - Is your network card "disabled" for some reason? Some laptops have a disable button that overrides the card so the wireless radio can be shut off quickly and easily. Make sure it's not been tripped. Usually laptops have an LED to indicate if the wireless radio is running.. usually blue.
note1: be sure to check the "order of preferred networks" and from that screen delete all wireless networks you won't connect to somewhat regularly and/or ones you've connected to accidentally in the past. Make sure that your home network is tops in the list.
note2: if you did not create your own name for your wireless network and are still running the default name, it's definitely smart to change that. Your laptop can easily get confused with other networks in the neighborhood that have the same name.
Hope that helps.

Laptop states wireless adapter not installed and configured? worked before.

To check if the wireless card is bad or OK.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - Is the wireless network connection listed and if so is there a red X on this connection?
If so, right click on the wireless and click Repair - this may fix your problem, it forces the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address.
If it doesn't fix the problem then go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - scroll down to Network Adapters and expand and check your wireless card, is it Working and Enabled?
If has a yellow ? against it or not working then reinstall the wireless card driver.
If the wireless card is built-in check the BIOS to see if the wireless card is enabled, if not enable the wireless card and repeat the above steps.
If this doesn't fix your problem then the wireless card is faulty and you need a new wireless card. You can get a PCMCIA wireless card to replace the faulty wireless card. If the wireless card is built-in then disable the faulty wireless card in the BIOS before you install the new wireless card.
