I have tried the suggestions offered above and I am unable to get my laptop to recognise the router nor can I get a network list.
I have tried uninstall used regscrub then reinstalled and managed to connect to the router but not the internet, I must be doing something wrong
I am getting frustrated and desperate and will appreciate any help

Have you set exactly the same encryption at both the router and the adapter?

I would recommend using no encryption at all at this stage. The first thing to do is to make the system work. Only then do you need worry about safeguarding it.

I would also recommend turning off your pc's firewall - you don't need it until you have a connection to the internet and it is surprising how ofter the firewall is what is preventing the connection.

If you turn off both encryption and firewall, do you get a connection?

with encryption and firewall off I cannot connect.I have ensured all settings are the same on both
I can see my neighbours router and can see mine, but will not connect.
The wireless icon does not appear in the bottom rh corner tray

Go to Control Panel - Network Connections, right-click on your wireless network connection and click Properties. For the moment, click the 2 boxes at the bottom regarding show icon and notify.

Now go to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the window and highlight it. Click Properties. Make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" an "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are ticked. Click OK

Click OK

You should now have a wireless network icon in the Taskbar. Double-click on it and click View Wireless Networks. Is your router (i.e. your SSID) visible? If so, highlight it and click Connect.

How are we doing so far?

"The wireless icon does not appear...."

Is the WLAN adapter enabled via its keyboard/fascia button?

Is the WLAN connection enabled via Network Connections?

Is it installed correctly in Device Manager?

Is the WLAN Notification Area icon set to "always show" in the NA's properties if the "hide inactive icons" feature is currently enabled?
