A few things come to my mind:

- make sure there is no MAC filter enabled on the router.
- set the IPv4 IP, DNS and gateway setting to automatic: http://windows.micro...tcp-ip-settings .
- reset firewall on computer.
- make sure the security code is typed correctly.
- temporary disable the security (WEP/WPA (2) encryption and mac filter) on the router and check if you can connect now.

Ok after doing a few things here and there, especially what maser00 suggested about the "set the IPv4 IP, DNS and gateway setting to automatic" I typed in the IP address and got it online. Now my next problem I'm facing is

Firefox browser page says "Server Not Found" "Check address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com" "If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connections" "If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is premitted access to the Web"

Internet Explorer says "cannot display the webpage" Hit "Diagnose Connection Problems" and it says "Plu a cable into the network adaptor "Local Area Connection" "Change the setting for the network adapter "Wireless Network Connection" A problem with your network router or broadband modem might be preventing an Internet connection"

Ok, i dont know what I did but the laptop is online. I followed maser00 instructions by entering the IP address into the IPv4. It got online but not connected to the internet. So I went back and had the computer sign in automaticlly. Now i'm online. This networking stuff is confuzing. But thank you so much to all for helping out
