go to the little network icon (wireless network connections icon) on the lower right hand side of your screen. It looks like a little PC, with a blinking screen.. if there is no connection it usually displays a red 'x' on the icon.

Then right click on it and choose 'Repair'

Make sure to stand with the laptop in the same room as the network router, so it gets a strong signal.

let me know if that works.. It happens sometimes..

Since he has owned it, supposedely my son used someone elses Internet connection on my other sons computer because he got banned for a game for a month, but it had nothing to dso with his computer, and i also disconnected the cable into the modem and recoonected it , and it seemed as though it worked fine until last night.

On the back of the modem is a tiny little reset switch ... use a paper clip to press it ... this will reset the modem so to allow the wireless router to *talk* to it ...

Sometimes computers are set up with multiple ways to connect to a network. With a windows machine there is always the windows network utility and sometimes the manufacturer will include another utility such as intel pro-set. If you click on start/ connect to/ wireless network connection/ view wireless networks you can see if the Windows utility is active. If windows is not the primary network utility you will see a message in the box that says Windows cannot configure this wireless connection. If you see this message you need to find the utility that your computer is using to connect to the wireless network. Usually there is an icon in the lower right of the screen, if you hover over each one with the cursor you should be able to tell. If you right click on the icon you should see some details about your options to connect, disconnect or repair the connection. Give this a shot and see if it works. I am assuming you are running Windows XP.
