Question about Computers & Internet
First go to start>Control Panel>Network connections. Right click on the wireless network and choose properties. When the window opens up click on wireless network tab and make sure there is a check mark next to allow windows to configure this connection. Now restart the pc. When windows starts up look in the lower right hand corner next to your time and find the wireless connection (you can find it by hovering your mouse over each of the icons). Right click on the wireless connection and choose "view availble wireless networks". At this point keep a couple of things in mind...A: If this is a laptop then does it have an integrated wireless on the motherboard? If so, then It probably is already using Windows wireless zero to configure the connection. And...B: Is the adapter turned on on the laptop. Finally...C: Has the wireless adapter been disabled. A and C can be answered easily when you went to network connections..If there was a red x over the connection icon then it is disabled. And if windows was already checked to configure the connection then it is probably on check to see if the wireless light is on for the laptop. Now if you can't see the SSID or (Wireless network name aka: Service Set Identifier) then Click the "Refreash wireless network" link on the left. If windows still can't find the network. Do a hard reset to the router by pushing in the button on the back of the router and holding it in for 30 seconds. then power off the pc, router, and modem wait 30 seconds then power on the modem first the router second and the pc third (in that order waiting for the lights to stabilize on each before bringing up the other. Now run the routers set up wizard and DO NOT ENABLE WIRELESS SECURITY yet. Wait until you can get a connection. Now try and get the wireless connection. Go to view availible wireless networks and it should pop up in the list.

More details would help, Windows XP, vista, etc. What is the wireless card brand? try double clicking on your wireless icon on the right side of your task bar and see if it can see your wireless router/access point, and try to reconnect that way. Some wireless adapters are set to use their own connection management software, like DLink, while others use windows.

In order for the wireless computer to connect to the router wirelessly, the router and the computer's wireless settings should be the same. Before trying to connect your wireless adapter to a Linksys wireless router, please know the following: SSID or Network Name, Wireless Security and/or Network Key.
