it's possible that it got uninstalled when you sent it to ibm for repairs try reinstalling the card with the netgear disk and see if it makes a difference

sure is a way to make it unencrypted, but not wise. If I were you I would just reset the router to its original settings and just create a new wireless connection and be certain you write down your password. This is the best bet and dont take long

with it saying no or limited connectivity it means that your modem/ router is not giving you an IP address. It is usually the modem/routers' fault if you dun receive an IP address. try resetting the router or firmware upgrade.

the encryption has nothing to do with this part coz even though you have encryption, the router should still give you an IP address. jus that you will not be able to get connected to the internet if you dun have the encryption key
