Well...more info would help us.

Is there a wireless network within range? If so, can other wireless devices conntet to it? Can they connect to it from the same spot as this computer (in case the room you are in is out of range of the network).

What kind of card is it? What kind of router do you have? What kind of computer is it?

Is it installed properly? Have you un-installed/re-installed it to make sure?

Can you download the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website and load them to make sure that's ok.

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

...Have you installed the configuration utility? Drivers? Is your WLAN Radio enabled? Is your computer hidden in a lead safe? Or a cypress desk? Does it show up in your device manager?
