My friends laptop an inspiron 1520 can detect wireless networks but wont connect. The routers do not have any mac filtering and other laptops and devices can connect no bother. The laptop can connect via cable however. Can anyone help?

Ensure all properties are correct for the network. Check that the network name is correct and that the laptop has a unique name. Have you used the wireless network wizard to set up the network? If not use this wizard from the main PC to set up the connection.

One other thing to check is that the firewall isn't blocking the connection.

Or maybe can be a virus blocking your connection, try to scan the laptop.
