I Have the laptop connected wireless.. I still cannot connect to the internet ,, I can no longer see the connection near the clock ..( tomatokingdom isn't showing at all..).
I see 5 lights on the router.. strong and clear.. internet..modem...router...(wired pc.. desktop.)..security.. that's all that's lighting up... the Wi-Fi is NOT

On my basic network info.. I only see my laptop and a red X where it would have been connected to the internet... not at all like the screen shot above I posted.
thank you.

If you can not see the wireless network at all then there are two major suspects - the wireless is switched off - at the laptop or the router.

if you can see any other wireless networks on the laptop then the laptop's wireless is switched on

The laptop may have a physical switch or a key press to switch wireless on / off, with the router there is normally a tick box on the basic wireless page to enable or disable

what we need to do is to attempt to connect to your network wireless - without security at first to prove the link

Ok,

If you can connect the laptop to the Internet via the router using a cable then at a basic level the connection is correctly set-up

The wireless network is in practical terms a special Cable the fact that It works wired should mean it will work wireless

If you open the Network and sharing center and on the left select the Manage wireless networks. Select each item in the list and select remove until there are no entries left

Go into the router (using the desktop ), and make sure you know the exact name and the password for your SSID (tomatokingdom 2? ), Note that the password will be case sensitive

Back on the laptop click on the tray network icon and click on the tomatokingdom 2? entry and select connect - enter the exact password when prompted.

The point of removing any existing entries is to make sure that the security type and encryption type are correct which win7 automatically checks on a new network entry
