Go to Start > Search and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /release ENTER. Then type ipconfig /renew ENTER. This just refreshes your IP. Test it.

Not yet? - Turn the router off and on. Test it with cable.

Not yet? - Connect the laptop with a network cable to the ISP modem and test.

Not yet? - Disconnect the modem power and cable / DSL connection. Wait a few minutes and reconnect. Then reset the modem by pushing in the reset button in the back. At this point you should have network. You may have to do the ipconfig again. Go ahead and test the wireless.

Can't connect to internet

I had a simlar problem. After spending 10 hours on the phone with the isp and the router company I gave up and called the geek squad at best buy. They came out to the house for $110.00 and it took him and hour. I went away for the weekend, had the same problme again. Called the Geek Squad again, he came out, spent another four hours fixing the problem, and it did not cost me any additional money:) I've been surfing smoothly ever since!!

Wireless routers and laptops

You would not need a specific card for your laptop unless you wanted to upgrade to N technology. You would need a Internet Service Provider (ect. cable, verizon) and a router. I'd have Geek Squad setup your router to ensure it is properly setup and secure.

Try letting windows manage your laptop wireless connection.  If you are using a third party sw to connect to the internet remove it and ask windows to manage your wireless connection.  Also verify that the router power cable is connected directly to the outlet and not an outlet splitter or surge protector.  Make sure your built in wireless is working and connected properly and test it than.
