Have you "Connected" to the wireless network (Router)? In other words, did you click the network icon in the System Tray beside the clock to see the Available Wireless Networks, select the one whose SSID (network name) matches that of your router and then clicked the Connect button? You would be prompted for any wireless encryption key (WEP/WPA/WPA2), sometimes called a Network key, and after entering you should connect to the wireless network.
