Im trying to get on the internet using the wireless (It is switched on). When i double click the wireless connection icon in the tray, the screen comes up and says that i have at least 3 wireless networks available, including the one i have hooked up to my pc which serves my hp laptop. i type in the same network key i used to get my hp up and running, hit connect, and nothing happens. the screen drops, but there are no prompts, no error displays, nothing. i go back to the tray to check if i am connected, and it says 'one or more wireless connections are available.' ive also gone into the advanced menu on the wireless network connection screen, and have tried to configure my network using the info i got from my d-link router software, and that does nothing either, no errors, nothing. when i go and check my network connections through the start menu, under wireless network connections, it says 'wireless connection unavailable.'
Your wireless devices are not configure to the right value. Start the wireless network wizard in your desktop computer.(Start- Control Panel - Network and Internet Connections - Setup a wireless network for a home or small office) Follow the on-screen instructions. After finishing, run the wizard in the router and then run it in the devices that you want to connect to the network.

Try switching the way you connect the wireless. On your laptop there are 2 different ways to connect, one using the the client application that goes with the wireless card, and the other way uses windows to manage and connect to the wireless. Switch them out. If you are using Windows, then use the other or vice versa. Open the software that came with your wireless card it should be on your desktop or in your program list. Click Start/Programs and look for it. For example it might be something like Atheros. Open it and look for a place or check mark on something that says: Let This tool Manage the Wireless, or Use Windows Zero Config to Manage the Wireless.
I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.
You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.
Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.
If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.
To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.
This should fix the issue.
Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings
Windows XP 1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections 2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath 3. Click Support 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Windows Vista 1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center 2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
