I need to unlock my router

Do laptops pick up the wireless signal and connect to your router? If not maybe you don't have the router configured for wireless.

If other devices such as laptops pick up the wireless router signal then there is no need to go into the router changing things because if you do, the things that work now, might not work.

Can your ipad see the wireless router (SSID) as one of the networks within range? If so, maybe you put the password in wrong. The password is case sensitive (caps and small letters must be exact or it will never connect).

Have a desktop with cable internet - installed router and added my laptop to wireless - it picked up the signal and connected and put in password no problem. Tried to do same with my cousins laptop from...

You would connect a laptop from Canada the same way as one from the US. You want to make sure the wireless card is turned on and check for wireless networks. Once you have found your network select it make sure you type the password correctly.

Get my laptop to pick up the zoom router

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

make sure that the router is broadcasting with another computer? Make sure that the wireless is turned on. Go to my computer right click, click on manage, services,start the "wireless zero configuration service" this will let windows fine the network. Then try to browse for the network.

Laptop not picking up router that is connected tomy pc

Your wireless settings may have the SSID Broadcast switched off. If this is the case, your laptop will not 'see' the wireless network. You will need to manually add the wireless connection or turn the SSID Broadcast back on.

Lose router signal everytime i restart my laptop

This seems to be an issue with the router itself. As the laptop is able to connect to other networks easily, the trouble seems to be with the router.

Try updating the firmware on the router. Also, change the wireless channel on the router and check if that helps. If the issue persists then I believe you will have to get the router replaced.

Laptop not seeing my wireless router

Try to manually "Add device to network" by using the wireless setup wizard. Check to see if the Wireless Zero Configuration service is "Running" before trying to add device. Yuo may also want to disable IPv6 in vista tcp/ip properties page.
