Tips for a great answer:
Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on
both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.
Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.
If you can see other wireless networks but not your own, then just go near your router with the laptop and see if it detects it. If not, you might not have the router configured for wireless. Can other laptops in the house see your wireless network? If so, then it is configured correctly.
There are two ways on which you can get on your wireless network. One way is to use the wireless software that came with the wireless adapter. The other way is to allow windows to control the wireless called (Zero Config). Whichever one you are using, try switching to the other to see if it picks up your wireless network. If you are using the software that came with the adapter when you open it you will see an option somewhere that will allow you to let windows control the wireless (zero config). Select it and try seeing it windows picks up the wireless signal from your router. Likewise if you are using windows (zero config) switch to the software that came with the adapter and look through it for an option that will say something like "Use this tool to manage the wireless". Select it and see if your network is picked up.
If you still don't see any wireless networks and the router is ok I would say your wireless card inside the laptop is not working properly. Turn the laptop off, remove the power cord, remove the battery then remove the cover that houses the wireless card on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the two antennas (black and white cable) from the wireless card (remember where they go). Then remove the screws if any so that you can remove the wireless card from the slot. Wait 30 seconds, then put it all back together and see if just reseating the wireless card fixes your problem. Sometimes the wireless card might be located under the keyboard and palmrest.
