Lots of reasons are possible.
A) Operating System
1) wireless adapter is disabled by your OS

B) Router settings -- you have to access the web page interface for the router ( usually 192.168.1.1 or similar address)

1) check Wireless settings. Do you have the router broadcasting the ESSID and channel ? Make sure you have enabled the radio broadcast.

2) Is the Access control list box checked?

If so, look to see what MAC addresses are included. Maybe the MAC address of your laptop needs to be stored there if you are limiting who can connect.

3) Check security -- If you have WEP or WAP enabled, make sure that the password is what your laptop is using. It's also important that the number of bits (usually 64, 128) set there is the same as the laptop uses.

4) check Schedule -- make sure that someone hasn't blocked access based on the time of day that you are trying to use your laptop to get to the internet.

C) Router location. If the router is setting on the floor or surrounded by lots of metal barriers or too distant from the laptop, then you'll have trouble. Try these one at a time to see if the laptop can tune in the radio.

D) Pure heart? Not having a pure heart can lead to lots of nasty disappointments.

In my lap with windows 8 version netconnection i s not available,but with same wifi modem..NETGEAR N150 WIRELESS D S L Modem Router mobile is net.connected.


Netgear are products that are last to just about 90 days. I am a computer tech and do a lot of house and business calls to TS networks. Most problems come from Netgear, once they switch to another brand, the problem disappear. Even I had a wireless Netgear router, and had to return it because the life span was about 4 month and the complimentary support is only 90 days.
Just by rebooting the modem (turning it off and on) usually fix it for about 8 hours, then the cycle start again. After rebooting the modem/router, delete your saved network from Windows 8 and start fresh. That should work.

check whether the dhcp option is turned on in ur wireless router. if its turned off, change it to on state and try. u will be able to connect. still if u din get access. use some other lap to connect to ur wireless network. if it is possible to connect with someother lap, then the problem is with ur lap. the wifi drivers might get corrupted. re-install it to fix the problems. if all above doesn't gets work, then the problem is with ur wireless router.

What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).

A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including http://www.hotspotsystem.com/ who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.
