Not sure where to post this, so if in wrong spot please move it.I am trying to set up my HP laptop to netgear wireless. I did the set up, says I have a strong signal, but when I unplug the ethernet it says no internet connection. I don't show the wireless icon either in the tray. just the normal icon. I was so happy to get this laptop, now I can't get it to work wireless. Please explain in simple terms. I don't understand all the computer jargon. thanks, hope you can help
