There could be few reasons for this:

1. Check your connection properties, it should be configured to - Obtain an IP address automatically.

2. Check the router's security settings or security key and sync with your laptop.

This should work, if not let me know

I had the same problem and my connection switch was off!! You should have a blue light. The switch is on the front left of the compaq presario laptop.

Or the right side on an HP Netbook. I've found that if I restart my router (a Netgear), the Netbook usually connects on the second or third try. Other than that, I (a) turn the wireless card off and on, use Start - Run to run "cmd" and then "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew." If none of that works, I restart the Netbook and, so far at least, I've always gotten connected eventually.
