I'll try to help - please post the results here, cut & paste or a screen print, if not briefly what's it saying.


Vista up to date?


Is your internet cable or other, if so what and what speed if you know.

Yes, as SWV said, some more info would be a big help. First, are other devices able to access the internet? Also, is your laptop connecting locally, but not reaching the internet, or is it failing to connect to the router at all?  I realize it's been several days, but if it's still an issue, there are plenty here willing to help. Let us know how it works out.
