Try This: Unplug the power to the DSL Router for 20 seconds then plug it back up. Remove the power cord and battery from the laptop, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Turn the laptop over and look for the screw on the Wireless Card Cover. Remove the screw and the cover (it may be a number of screws depending you your system) then unplug the antenna cables to the wireless card (normally a black and white or black and gray cable). Remember which cable goes where before you remove them. Remove the screw that holds the wireless card in the slot, then remove it. Put the Wireless card back in the slot and secure it with a screw. Put the antennas back on the wireless card and then the cover. Put the battery back in, plug in the power cord and reboot.
If the system still does not find your wifi card, the card might be bad.
*** Sometimes the wireless card will be under the keyboard or palmrest instead of the bottom of the computer.

Or just make sure you are entering the correct wep key. hope this helps
When you look at the properties for your wireless adapeter, does it say enabled?
On most laptops you'll have a key that has Fn on it. This is your function key. Hold it down, and look for a key that has what looks like a little radio transmission tower on it. Press that key (while holding the Fn key), and see if you get a pop up stating that your wireless is enabled or disabled (usually it pops up with the no symbol through it).
Try this a couple of times, with a few minutes inbetween to see if you can get it to reenable again.
Try to plug in the power cable alone, do it without the battery and see if your wireless works. If your wireless works without the battery, and works with the cable alone it may be a battery conductivity problem.
