Unhappy Laptop Not Connecting to Wireless Connection
When I try to connect to the internet via a wireless connection, I select the connection I want and it says it's connected.

However when I go to the wireless connection properties it is sending but not receiving and it won't connect to the internet.

I went to the CMD and typed in IPCONFIG and get the message saying my "Media Not Connected."

I have pushed the green button on the router so my laptop can pick up the settings but it still won't connect.

Also, I took my laptop to my friends house and was able to connect on their wireless.

I am on Windows Vista. - PLEASE HELP!!!

Really sounds like you need to update your wireless driver but post the logs requested below in your next reply so I can see if there are any other issues.

Please download FarbarServiceScanner and run it on the computer with the issue.

Make sure the following options are checked:
Internet Services
Windows Firewall
System Restore
Security Center/Action Center
Windows Update

Press "Scan".
It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

Please download MINITOOLBOX and run it.

Checkmark following boxes:

Report IE Proxy Settings
Report FF Proxy Settings
List content of Hosts
List IP configuration
List Winsock Entries
List last 10 Event Viewer log
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions and Memory size
List Devices (problems only)

Click Go and post the result.

Try rebooting your router, if that doesn't work then hard reset it and reconfigure it.

you would need to set up a new network on your router and new password then on your system remove all the older networks by going to network and sharing>manage wireless networks> remove all of > add manaually new network
