Try plugging in a network cable to the laptop and if that works go to the site and get the latest driver. If you can not acces the internet via that method get a flash drive, go to the desktop pc, plug the flash drive in to the desktop pc usb port, go to the xfinity website, enter the laptop's model number and then wireless driver, it will look something like this (laptop model number) wireless driver, find the most up to date driver and download it, then move it to the flash drive. WAIT FOR IT TO TRANSFER. When it is done transfering unplug the flashdrive. Plug the flash drive into the laptop usb port then start the laptop if you haven't already. Wait until it is done instaling the Flashdrives driver. When it is finished, go to the flash drive files and move the driver to your desktop. Then double click the driver note the name and location the folder it creates. When it is done downloading go to the device manager in control pannel under the security option. The find the wireless driver and double click it. Update it manualy. Type the name and location of the folder it created and then hit enter, it should update. When it updates succesfully restart the laptop. If it still does not connect to the router than bring it to a repair shop.
