After installing the driver and you don't see the Wireless LAN in the Device Manager. this means that either the wrong driver was installed or the wireless adapter is faulty and was not detected.
Download a fresh wireless driver from the Gateway WEB site, make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows XP or Vista version of the driver that matches the version of Windows that is installed on your laptop.

    go to control panel use add hardware wizard to detect any hardware not yet install. if this fail, open the compatment for the wireless network card at the back of the laptop, remove the card and fix it back again. this will work if the card is good. if not, change the card.

Use an Ethernet cable to make a "wired" connection from the network-port on your laptop to one of the LAN ports on your wireless router. Then, "login" to the router, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to set:
* SSID ("network name")
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* password for your network

With those settings, your wireless-adapter should be able to connect.
