Most wireless on laptops are not enabled. You need to open network connections and enable your wireless from there. Thos laptop with a switch normally turns it on temporarily. For IE you need to change a setting in tools options, then connection and find LAN and open this and set it to automatically detect a network, click apply or OK and the reopen the browser. IE is not set by default to find a network. Computers will find and sense a network connected to a computer, but doesn't necessarily mean it is really connected. It may work one time and not the next. The computer user does need to change a few settings to make it active and permanent. Hope this helps. If not there may be other issues involved.

There's usually a switch on your laptop usually on it's front side... If you look at the keyboard, look to the front of the keyboard on its dimension underneath where the laptop closes. If it's a PC, it should have a switch that switches from wifi to no wifi. Make sure it's switched to WiFi.

Well this coul be one of two things. 1. Your modem has been shut off or unplugged and your router is sending out an empty signal. 2. At&t could be doing matinance and temporarily shut down Internet services. That wont last long at all. If it's neither simply call at&t and inform them of your problem and they can send a refresh signal to fix things.
