I have a NetGear wireless router at home with 2 desktops and 1 laptop on it.

Today I picked up a Gateway laptop and can't seem to get it to get an internet connection.

I feel like I'm doing everything right, however,maybe I'm not.

Any feedback will be much appreciated

Model of the Gateway also the operating system and the current service pack installed would be helpful.

There is no SP as yet released for Win7 so not a problem there.

Am not real familiar with the Network set-up interface for Win7. But in my limited time with it, it always seemed pretty automatic. Can you tell me what program you are using to connect via wireless? Win7 has the program\ability built in. But many manufacturers bundle third party programs along with the NIC = Network Interface Card.

Some more information would be helpful.

What steps have you attempted to connect? What messages if any are you getting while attempting to connect? You are attempting to connect wirelessly, correct?

Mind sharing so others may benefit and not miss the basic step.
