Hello,
Its possible your wireless card on the laptop needs to be reset but I would first try rebooting your router. Unplug it from the wall and wait 5 seconds then plug it back in. Try connecting once it boots up. If that still doesn't work, try removing your wireless adapter from the control panel / system / device manager. Expand the Network Adapter section and right click the wireless card and press delete. If it asks if you want to delete the driver as well, do not click this or do not put a check mark in it. Now reboot your laptop. When windows loads it will find the wireless card and reinstall it. Now try connecting to your wireless router.
Is this the only laptop you have or do you have other wireless devices that connect fine with the router?

Plug a network cable into the back of the router, co the start, run, and tupe cmd thenhit ok.
type ipconfig /all and hit enter bring up internet explorer and type the ipaddress you see in the black and white window it should be a 192.something number then hit ok you will need to type the password for your router in it shoul be located on the back or bottom of the router, oon certain models if it is still set to default the user and password win both be admin. look under the settings and you should be able to change the security to make it viewable and not hidden. You may be able to get to this section by using the CD that came with the router, however most systems do not giv this option on the CD only under the dns from the router itself.

Does the laptop support a Wireless -N connection? Many laptops only support Wireless G.

Getting started
Provided that the above requirements are met, you can now begin setting up your Linksys Wireless-N Router. In this example, we'll be setting up the Linksys E3000 High Performance Wireless-N Router. The following steps will walk you through the entire process.
Step 1:
Your Linksys Wireless-N Router allows you the freedom of running setup via a wired or wireless connection. Therefore, please start by performing the instructions under the description that best matches the computer you're working with. Proceed to Step 2 once you're done.
Description A:
You are using a computer with no wireless connectivity that is normally connected with an Ethernet cable to your DSL/Cable modem.

Instructions A:
Please connect one end of the supplied Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer, and connect the other end into one of the numbered Ethernet ports at the back of your Linksys Wireless-N Router.
Description B:
You are using a laptop with a built-in wireless adapter.

Instructions B:
If you're using a laptop, please ensure that its wireless feature is switched ON, and that your laptop is positioned within 5 feet of your Linksys Wireless-N Router.
NOTE: Most laptops have a switch that turns its wireless feature ON and OFF. Refer to your laptop's documentation or online help if you're unsure where this switch is. This doesn't apply if you purchased an external wireless adapter separately.
Step 2:
On your computer, insert the supplied Setup CD that came with your Router. Setup should start automatically.

NOTE: If setup doesn't load automatically, please click here.

Step 3:
The first screen greets you with the Software End User License Agreement. Please take a moment to read through and understand the agreement. Once you're ready, go ahead and click Next.

NOTE: The setup process automatically generates a unique and secure Wireless Network Name (SSID) for your convenience.

kb21463-006_en.png Step 6:
The next part of the setup automatically detects your Internet connection type. If you are using a DSL connection, you may be requested to enter your account details. If this is the case, simply enter your Account name and Password in the allocated fields. Otherwise, you may skip ahead to Step 7.

Once your Internet connection is up and running, a confirmation window similar to the screenshot below will appear on your screen. Your Linksys Wireless-N Router is now secure and connected to the Internet. This concludes the setup process. Click OK to continue.
