Have you enabled the wireless signal on the router?
Have you configured the router properly?
Have you hidden the SSID?
Have you blocked the MAC address of the laptop's network adapter?

Tell us the procedures you have tried. What make is the router etc

Have you recently installed IE7? It has caused havoc with my system, causing the task bar icons for my wireless network to completely disappear. Had to uninstall and go back to IE6 to get them back.

XP has a wireless setup function as I recall...I'm on wireless all the time, and it seems to me that that was the way it was set up...but don't quote me on that. It's been a while. I think it is in the Networking section of the help files.

I'd go back into the setup for your wireless system and reinstall... You will have to reset your access keys as well...don't forget :whistling:
