Question about Computers & Internet
Only connection to internet is by cabel to laptop and home hub
Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((•))) Make sure its pressed on. There should be an option to "automatically connect" when it detects the network. Look for a checkbox. create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options in the connections tab tick in the box never dial a connection below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding. Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop. From the pop-up menu select "Enable." This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver. Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard. After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection. Right-click the wireless icon again. From the pull-up menu choose to view all available wireless networks in the area. A window appears with all the networks your computer receives some sort of signal from. Select the wireless network you want access to, type in the password (if required) and click "Connect." Momentarily the laptop computer connects to the Internet.
you should be able to, it depends on the laptop, the os, the wireless adapter, and the settings .
Click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection' (or similar) and click 'enable'. right click on the network in the bottom toolbar select open network sharing center you should have the options to either connect or disconnect or set up a network connection this will vary depending on your operating system Hope this helps. b>

SOURCE: Wireless Internet For Laptops
It is possible to plug a USB wireless adapter into your laptop and connect almost anywhere, however there are limitations; You won't be connecting to your own ISP unless you are within range of your wireless router, and you need to be within range of ANY wireless router to get wireless internet access at all.
What makes wireless connections convenient in a laptop is the fact that many businesses - coffee shops, bars, hotels, even McDonalds - offer free wireless access, or very low subscription rates.
I'd also like to point out that you may not need to purchase a wireless USB adapter; If your laptop was built anytime between 2005 and today, then it most likely has a wireless card already built in; refer to the laptop's owner's manual, or the manufacturer's web site, for more info.
*Note* If you find that a USB device, or built in wireless adapter, don't have as much range as you'ld like, most computer stores sell seperate antennas for boosting range.
Hope this helps!

have a look at the book that came with the wireless router and see what is the ip address. it should be 22.214.171.124. type this into your home pc internet explorer address bar. you should get the router settings page. then go to the wireless setup page and you will find the wep key there

First step - Enable your wireless hardware by switching it on some models have a separate switch or with the keyboard
Second step - Check your wireless zero configuration service under adminitration tools ->services is running or its managed by another software supplied along with your laptop - enable it. one only works at a time.
third step - go to your network connections choose wireless connection and right click properties double click on Internet protocol TCP/IP and see there is any IP manually inserted change it to automatically obtain IP address
Four step - Open your Internet Explorer and enjoy wireless internet.
Note. Some laptop required to create profiles prior to connect to wireless but from your post i hope your laptop is not one of them

Settings must have changed and not not changed back, set your friends settings as default settings. He may have accidently reset something etc.
A quick solution is to go to
System Restore and reset it back a day before you gave it to your friend.
go to START > PROGRAMS >
ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS and you'll find SYSTEM RESTORE there. Click on it and find the option to set your Notebook to an EARLIER TIME. After selecting that from the list find a date BEFORE YOU LOANDED THE NOTEBOOK TO YOUR FRIEND and left click on it and follow the instructions and your COmputer will restore the system to that earlier date (it could be 1 day before you loaned it). You will not lose any files etc.
After it goes through a cycle of rebooting etc and it resets to the earlier date, your Network should work as it did before you loaned it to your friend.
If you have trouble finding SYSTEM RESTORE go to HELP and look for a link there.
Good Luck !
