Default wireless "local"

I had to reset my laptop to factory settings now my wireless connection is local only. Phone, tablet, nds and ipod can all connect to internet through router. Diagnostics says "cannot connect with primary DNS server. I can connect to other networks.

Did you set the router to have DHCP disabled?
What's your router model?

Did you reconnect the wireless with the correct wireless key?
Is your wireless turned on (a hardware switch or by pressing FN and one of the F1-F12 keys)?
