Question about Computers & Internet
Gonna give it a shot from the hip--I'm assuming you have a name for your network and a password. You will have to allow the laptop to into your network. I went through this and it can be frustrating. Whoever set up the network, have them help if possible. There should be a blue button on your wireless router. Check for a corresponding blue button on your laptop. This will make things simple. Press the button on the router first and, WITHIN 2 MINUTES, press the button on your computer. They will "talk" to each other and set up the permissions for you.
Make sure your firewall settings are correct(to allow the contact with the network) and also your virus software is set to allow the home network. Get some onsite help if you've never done this. ---Rick
P.S. Have someone check the security settings on the router--My home network name is set to "invisible" so it doesn't even appear on a network search! I also have a setting enabled called "Mac address". This is a unique serial number given to every computer. If that setting is enabled, even if a person had the password(and mine's bulletproof), they couldn't access the network because their system wasn't on a special "ok" list.

Have you tried putting the mini next to the router to see if it will connect. and do you have security set up on your router. do you get any error messages as well when it tries to connect. you may solve the issue by reinstalling the driver. i just need to know the exact model you have as well as the operating system it uses.

This can often be an issue with security encryption. There may be a
wrong key entered or the client Adapter does not support the encryption
1. First check or Enter a correct Wireless Security Key (passkey/passpharse/password).
2. Check if any updated wireless driver for your Computer is available; if yes the download and install the updated wireless driver in the Computer.
3. Try disabling any running Anti-Virus/Internet Security application. (It may be blocking the connection).
4. Try repairing the Wireless connection in the Computer. Right click on the Wireless icon and select Repair/Diagnose.
5. Disable the IPv6 (if you are using Vista Operating System in the Computer)
NOTE: Click the Start button -> Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center.
In the Network and Sharing Center window, under Tasks , click Manage network connections. On the menu bar, click Advanced and then click Advanced Settings. In the Advanced Settings window, on the Adapters and Bindings tab, in the Bindings for Wireless Network Connection: box, click to choose the appropriate connection type and then click to remove the checks in the boxes next to all instances of Internet Protocol Version 6.
Click on the OK button.
If the issue persists then provide mode details like Model # of the Computer, Operating System installed in the Computer etc.

Try moving closer to the wireless station, also if the laptop has a wireless button or switch, make sure its turned to on.
if the problem remains, press and hold the windows button and press r. in the run menu type cmd and click ok
in cmd, type ipconfig /release and press enter
then type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter
then type ipconfig /renew and press enter, this may take a moment.
after it is done, write ipconfig and press enter, look at the default gateway number. Write ping "and the default gateway ip number" for example 126.342.123.332
so you would type ping 126.342.123.332 and press enter
if you don't have a default gateway address or you don't receive response on the ping your not properly connected, what kind of security you have enabled on your wireless network?
Could you also send me the brand and model of the router.

It is dhcp server issue.
For that connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then access it with following link.
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
then go to advanced and enable dhcp .
Then save settings and then restart .
Also you can set ip address manually but make sure it is in range with router.
For assign ip adres manually right click on my network places then you can see your wi fi right click on it then then proeprty then go to tcp ip then set ip addresss as your another computer ip just set last number as different from computer means if your other computer ip is 192.168.1.15 then you can set your ip as 192.168.1.16
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
