    Basically i have bought a new laptop but cant connect it to my network.im
    running vista and its a gateway MT6223B .problem is that when i get the list
    of wireless networks avaiable mine isint there.but my xbox 350 can pick it up
    and connect as can my PC ,Wii and Nintendo DS but not my laptop.My laptop can
    connect to other wireless networks but it will just not find mine altogher.
    list of things i have tried. I have unistalled the driver and re installed
    for the card.turned off encryption.SSID is on . ive used the laptops MAC
    adress and entered it in the MAC adress control as allowed. none of the
    above have worked .i have a belkin Pre-N routher
