Re: Wireless connections won't connect!!!!
Make sure if your using WEP or WPA or NONE if the wireless router has a security like WEP or WPA make sure you enter the right WEP KEY or WPA key if ask on your computer take a look for your wireless router setting and wireless setting on your computer meets and same.. or might be on your ADSL or what ever line you have try contact your ADSL hotline or what ever Line you use might be they had connection problem or try using LAN if working. if not your ADSL Line or what ever Line you use is the problem

the bars only show your connection to an access point, like a router. Probably you should reset that device (router) and then try reconnecting... Or try connecting the computer up to the router with a cable and see if it works.
Verify that you have the correct type of authentication in wireless- if your router is set to WPA2, then you would have to go under the connection properties > security tab to change it to match that setup. If that does not work, then the issue may be that the wireless card is defective and starting to fail.
If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.
Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
First you need to check that the wireless button on the notebook is on or not.
Then you have to click on start - go to connect to - choose show all connections - there you will find the networks list - choose your network from the list and click connect at the bottom...if the network is secured it may ask you for pass key also.
If you have problems in connecting . check the wireless services is on or not .. to check that need to type services.msc in run box .. and in the services page check for wireless zero configuration double click it and the services should be started and automatic.
If there is not connection at all you can also check for drivers in device manager.. .under network adaptor- - check for drivers it could be broadcom wireless or intel pro wireless . uninstall them and reinstall it form recovery manager of your notebook ... To access recovery manager you have to click all programs - then recovery manager - click advanced option in it - then driver download - these are the steps you have to follow ..
Go to your Device Drivers and open the listing of devices. Select each line by line and hit UPDATE Drivers. If the drivers are current, it will just say so, if the drivers need to updated, the operating system will update to the new or current drivers for that device. Once that has been done, you should be connecting OK.
