Most laptops have a switch that turns of the wireless feature to save power. Maybe you accidentally bumped it. An LED indicator will lite up if it is on.

Wirless networking


The red line through the icon indicates that that network adapter is disabled in the device manager. (You can enable it by right clicking My computer, choose Manage>device manager. But the realtek is used for your ethernet cable connection. The 1394 connections are network adapters used for network connections to printers, etc. probably left over from your work setting, and can be disabled for the moment.
You don't mention what OS you're using, but I'll guess XP, and provide another link for vista just in case....
In any event, it's going to be necessary for you to reconfigure your network connection to the router/gateway you're using at home to connect to your ISP. Here's a general wireless networking troubleshooter, in the event that you've already covered the basics. And here and here are articles/links that will give you more advanced guidance. (Also here.)
But here and here are links to basics: to help you set up and maintain a network in xp, and here's an alternative for vista.
Another excellent resource to help you answer questions and troubleshoot the connection is this site, which has specifics that deal with many common ISPs.
In the end, you may find the easiest thing to do is start at the beginning by setting up a new home network and working through each step to establish a new connection.

Wireless switch is amber


By default the wireless adapter is enabled on your HP PC. However there are many ways to disable your wireless adapter. It can happen by turning it off in windows or some application may disable it due to execution errors.

Most of the time, when a wireless adapter is disabled on a machine it is very often because someone has pressed the wirless button by mistake. If it has been pushed by mistake, turn the wireless back on by finding the wirless button on your machine and pressing it. Check for button location on the top of the keyboard or the side or front of the PC. Thanks

McAfee has controls that can lock you out of the internet. Are you trying to connect via wi-fi or ethernet cable? If it is wi-fi, try disabling McAfee, connect to your wi-fi then turn it back on. You'll need to make an exception for that connection. If wired, disable McAfee, make an exception for port 80, 8080, 23.

Wireless not working


Did you disable the wireless card through the BIOS? Sometimes the wireless card can be accidentally turned off through one of the HP Wireless Assistant which will keep it from turning Blue when you press it

Adapter disabled


Try a cold boot, then recheck your wirless settings
If that doesn't help, try deleting the Profile and adding a new one. Then walk through all the settings for wirless
