Default New notebook won't recognize router

Well I have recently bought a HP Pavilion dv6226us notebook, the problem finding my belkin router using the internal wlan, the router itself is not a problem, because I can connect to it just fine using my psp or when I connect it to the notebook using a wire. When I nrowse for hotspots, it only finds my neighbors and some password protected 2wire stuff, but not my own router. I also do not use a password on my router. Anyone know a fix?

Have you enabled the AP in the router settings?

Do you have DSL? 2wire is the default for a wireless network with a Bell South wlan (in my area). Strange that you're PSP can connect to it. Are you sure your PSP is connecting to your router? Did you setup the router?

Yeah I have sbc yahoo dsl, I think my cousin set up the router since he installed it, and I know for sure the psp connects to my router, since the signal is 100%

also do you know a way to find out my 2wire password?

Have you tried Removing/ Reinstalling the wirelss driver on the notebook? Also, on the advanced tab of the wireless setting should be a choice to run it adhoc, AP and adhoc, and just AP, try changing that to only use Access Points. Hope that helps.
