Connect to wireless hotspot

I am unable to connect to neither a secure connection (with users password) or unsecured connection. My laptop searches for a wireless connection but it drops after a second or so. I wondered if it had something to do with my laptop settings as my wireless connection used to be connected at my preious house to virgin media through a netgear wireless router. However, because I'm mobile now I just need to connect to either friends computers or a hotspot. Can anyone talk me through what I need to check or do? many thanks

I have managed to resolve this by myself. In case anyone is interested, I had to delete my previous wireless manager connection from my old router. Once I did this I was able to connect to another wireless connection with the secure password.
