Have you try to check the IP ADDRESS of your laptop? Your laptop must have a unique IP address or it must have the same default gateway with your ISP provider or the router. see example below,

IP ADDRESS: 192.168.1.15
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.1.1

preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

note: 192.168.1.1 is the IP ADDRESS of your internet or ROUTER that is given from your ISP that they've configured.

try to check the other laptops that was able to connect, you can follow it.

Are you using windows utility to connect to the wireless network. If you are not then switch over to windows utility.
Remove the preferred networks from the list, and then try to connect.
If that doesn't work then try to uninstall and reinstall the adapter using the found new hardware wizard.

Cannot connect to my network


If it happens to be a Dell, I think they have a specific configuration or something that has to be changed. For that I'm pretty sure you have to contact Dell, or look on their website.
The way that some routers are set up you have to have a certain pass phrase to access the wireless connection. And make sure, by opening the wireless network monitor, the icon should be in the lower right hand corner by the clock. That you are connecting to the correct user account on the router. Some router configurations require a different user account for each wireless device connecting to it. Or the computer trying to connect you may have to manually select from that menu in the wireless network monitor..

Can't add new PC to extant WEP 128 network


If your system is encrypted you will need to set it up in xp before you open the media centre as if i remember there is no option to enter a password for WEP. Just open the network card properties and select the TCP/IP line then properties ans select obtain ip address automatically. Then when network is detected enter the WEP password numbers.
