You have restored the laptop not the router. you don't need to change any settings on the router. all you need to do is connect to the wireless network on your laptop.
f it is windows XP,
you will find the wireless network connection Icon in the system tray. right click on it and go to view available networks. you will find your network. select the enwtrok and click connect. it will ask you for the network key if it is secured network. type the network key and you will be able to connect and go online.

Broken function keys on gateway NV57H13u

If you are sure they were working yesterday then roll your system back to a day before yesterday by using System Restore. System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having the problem. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). Click Start/Program or All Programs. Click Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. In windows 7 just click Start and in the search box type: System Restore then look up at the returned search results and click on System Restore.

System Recovery on the other hand will delete everything and set your system back to when you first purchased it.
