RE: internet

On some recent laptops, when you plug in an Ethernet cable it automatically disables the wireless. Removing the cable re-enables the wireless again.

If the wireless is not working, check if you have the correct security code for the router. Are you sure that you are trying to connect to the right router? sometimes the signal from a neighbour can be stronger and override your normal connection.
