Hi There

Are the wireless settings the exact same as those on the router?

Also run ipconfig /all from a command prompt and give me the output.

Hi There

It doesn't matter that your laptop is NOT connecting to the internet - I NEED the IP settings from it BEFORE I can help you.

Hi There

OK now we are talking. You have an APIPA IP address which provides NO default gateway. Which means you will never get onto the internet.

type ipconfig /release then enter

then type ipconfig / renew then enter

then type ipconfig and give me the output
