    I just got a new Netgear wireless router last night and after doing thier install it has disconected my internal wireless card on my Dell laptop. Everytime I go to network connections it shows the wireless card but says disconected, not disabled. I'm now at work and have no way to access our wireless here.

    Anyone know what I need to do?

    Are you using a 3rd party program to manage your wireless connections, or the Wireless section of Windows XP?

    Sounds to me that your connection program reset or jumped to another connection when you were fooling with your router at home. You should be able to reconnect by choosing the correct SSID from the wireless networks list and clicking connect.
