by I cannot connect laptop to internet?

Are there any error messages? What troubleshooting steps have you taken? Does a another computer work on the connection?

We need more information please :)

What do you mean it will not connect? When you installed the software it must have required you to pick a wireless network to connect to?

If you open the software do you see any wireless networks that you can attach to? Is your router even broadcasting it's SSID? It it encrypted?

Okay then...

It sounds like things are pretty fubar at this point.

So, the next step I'd take is to go into the wireless connection and in the TCP/IP settings make sure that it is set to DHCP on the address and the DNS servers (that way it pulls them from the wireless router.)

I'd also reset IE to defaults.

Also, make sure that in the wireless configuration for the ssid name, that you are suppose to put in the hex and not the passphrase.

It's time to call a professional in your area. With out actually seeing what is going on, it is very hard to diagnose. Sorry.
