    let me know if you see wireless connection in the network connections
    in order to find it, click start --> control panel --> network connections and you must see wireless connection in case of win xp


    start --> control panel --> network and internet --> network and sharing center --> manage network connections and you must wireless network connection under LAN or hi speed connection... in case of win vista


    if you have that ikon that means you have your drivers installed on the computer.

Wireless not functioning


reinstall it clean or reinstall wireless drivers..after that just unplug the router and let it reconfigure ..this will get the wireless network in sight again ..sometimes it just stops transmitting or makes issues like that ..but if the wireless card is fine ..than all it may be wrong is the router ..In worse case just reset the router and configure it again .. but I think it will be enoug to unplug it for 30 seconds..
