    just got an hp g62 laptop but after connecting the first time time to my wireless network all i get now is "windows was unable to connect to virgin". i know that the wireless network is functioning correctly because i can connect to it via blackberry or iphone.
    i have been on the phone to the isp for hours changing settings and removing and replacing the network connection without any success.
    i have also reset the router (netgear wgr614v7) but nothing seems to help.

    so before i throw the thing out of the window i was hoping someone here could possibly help.

    thanks in advance.

    check your cable, if you have an UTP cable, change it with Crossover, or other way around

    Do you actually use cable or wirelessly?

    switched on laptop and router this morning and it connected automatically?????

    wireless sender for my tv was beside the router, switched of sender and can now connect wirelessly to internet.
    must be interference from the sender signal that caused the problem, seems simple now
