Double check the laptops wireless switch. They often have a feature that allows you to completely disable/enable the wireless aspects of a laptop. Windows will not tell you it is disabled always and just tell you it can't detect any signals.

    My apologies, I mainly repair laptops and must have had them on the mind. Does the system definitely have a wifi card or USB adapter?

SOURCE: My gateway gt5432 wireless interface is not working

Go into the device manager and uninstall (right click and choose uninstall) the network card, reinstall it by chooseing actions, scan for hardware changes (in the device manager). Its an Ip address conflict probably. or open a command screen by typing cmd in the run dialog and then type ipconfig at the curser. See if you have an Ip address, if not type in ipconfig "space" /renew. This will give your computer a new ip addy. Good Luck!

DOESN'T DETECT WIFI


The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.

If you are using windows and it dosn't have a driver of some sort for the wireless dongle (USB adapter), then you will have to hook up the computer directly with a "Wired" network connection, (Perhaps using the connection from the other computer), to download a driver.

If Windows does have the driver and it's working. Go to your Network Connections folder, and into the Properties of the Wireless Connetion and set it to use, "Windows Zero Configuration Tool" to manage this connection; as opposed to a wireless management tool included with the device.

An option should be around there that allows you to "View Available Wireless Networks". Take that option and look for your Router's SSID, or name. It should be the one with the strongest signal.
Double click it, or select Connect.

You will need the security settings here.
Enter it if you know what it is.
Copy them from the other computer's advanced wireless network settings, or if the other computer is a Wired Network computer, then browse with the Internet browser to it's network connections "Default Gateway" address, Usually 192.168.x.x where the x's are 0 or 1.

Get the Default gateway by opening a Command Window, (Command Prompt / DOS prompt) and typing:

ipconfig /all

This will list the network connecitons IP addresses, and Default Gateways.

Once in the Default Gateway on the Web Browser, log in and look for the Wireless security settings.
Get the Key listed there, and use that on the notebook wireless conneciton.

Hope this helps,
Cheers.

Sounds like you might be accidentally connecting to a neighbour's network instead of your own. You need to go into your wireless settings on each laptop and tell them to connect to your own network.
