The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.
Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.
If your driver are ok then is your computer is in same WORKGROUP like other are(If you are in LAN connection and sharing internet with other). was there any IP address in your computer before you formatted it? make it confirm and if IP was there then give back the IP to tour connection.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

well!! I have an answer for you.your comp is loosing the IP address.
goto start - programmes - accessories - dos prompt.
type ipconfig.you`ll get ip address,subnet mask,default gateway.copy it.
goto network and sharing center,click on view status,goto propertiesand double click on internet protocol(tcp/ip) or IPv4.type in the IP address,subnet mask,default gateway.in DNS server address type the default gateway in primary DNS and in secondary 220.127.116.11.
your connection won`t drop after this.
If the laptop was connecting wirelessly before and you didn't change the wireless security key on the router during your troubleshooting steps with the ISP then it should just reconnect. If it doesn't reconnect you should probably delete the wireless profile that's saved and try connecting again. When you delete the wireless profile you will have to enter the security key again. Make sure you have this information handy.
If you are uncertain what the wireless security key is use your desktop that is physically connected to the router to log into the router and reset the security key.
To log onto the router you need to know the routers IP Address. You can obtain that information through the following:
Look for the default gateway. The default gateway is the IP Address of the router. By default the IP is 192.168.1.1.
Type whatever IP Address you discovered into the address bar of your web browser (Internet Explorer for most) and hit enter.
You will be prompted for a login. If you didn't change the default login information to the router it should be a blank username and the word: admin - as the password.
Navigate to the wireless settings and reset the security key.
If you are connecting to a WiFi Access Point from one laptop, and you know the encryption settings and the SSID (name of the WiFi connection) then you can plug that infomation into your other laptop WiFi connection page and you should be able to connect.
The configuration is very similar to XP.. you just need the information to put in on the Vista..
