Need more details about the issue, brand/model of laptop, did this work before, do other systems go online OK, are you on wireless or wired, did you test the system somewhere else to see if issue is only at your house, etc...?

Not really any better info. Need full details about what you are looking at. When did this start, did it work before, what happened before it started working? Are you on WiFi or network cable?

What do you mean you got the laptop working last week? Again, need full details about the issue, did you have to do a factory reset? What model/brand of laptop? What is working before whatever you did last week? Did you install the drivers from the laptop vendor? You still did not list what your laptop brand/model is. Do you see the wireless card in Device Manager? Does the WiFi network icon show up in the system tray by the clock and can you see the WiFi signals in it?

We don't know what you did, nor what you are seeing unless you post the details.
