The question is too general sunil.
you might have to enable wireless function wit a hotkey sequence--mine is Fn-F2--but most pc's are different
goto manufacturers site/manual and find out if you have this keyboard function.
there are available to the consumer,gereralising 6 wi-fi protocols commonly in use ,thats 802.11 a/b/g/n/i/x-----n/ is the most recent.
they have between 11 and 14 channels depending on which country you are in (excluding Korea)
channel 1,channel6,and channel 11 are the best channels to choose because they dont overlap,the width of these channels is 22mhz ,all the other channels overlap.
bluetooth uses a similar channel system and can come into conflict with 802.11 also it can suffer interference from other household goods like microwave ovens.
the signal is sent out repeatedly in "frames" whic can be encrypted by one of the encryption standards but is also prone to be "dropped" in which case the code on modern machines re-sends the "handshake" repeatedly.

Have you down graded? Try Windows Updates. If so you will have to find the old XP driver one by one at the Component Manufacturer's website. It's a bit of a pain. That begs the question, "Why Downgrade?"
