    I bought a laptop and a Netgear wireless router. The desktop which is hard wired works fine but the laptop will not connect. In the task tray on the laptop there are three broken network icons. One says a network cable is unplugged and the others say wireless connection not connected. When I open these there is no wireless network to choose from. Any ideas what could be wrong?

    Do you have the wireless network turned on under the netgear preferences?
