did you turn your router off for a few minutes and then restart it?

You will have to re-install your ISP settings from the CD.

router hasnt been switched off. i have no idea how to re-install, and dont even know of the cd!!

They are stored on the router, not the computer, so they'll be unaffected by what you have done. Have you tried connecting the router and the PC via an Ethernet cable, to see if you can connect to the internet that way?

You may need to reinstall the driver for your wireless adapter - the driver should be on a CD that came with the machine. Check the wireless adapter out in Device manager, to make sure that it has been enabled.

Few things we should know so we can help you a bit more...

1. Is is a Desktop or a Laptop?
2. What Wireless Router do you have?
3. Who's your ISP?

do you have an icon in bottom right of screen that is two monitors? if so if you hover your cursor on it does it say wireless networks are availiable?if it does then click on connect and if you see your network put in your password and click connect.
