You need to install wireless adapter driver if you have not done yet, after that do some configuration and connect it to wireless network. Feel free to check out this wireless network troubleshooting tips article if you need more ideas.
I have done all of those things and still nothing. I took it to work and it connected to my wireless there just fine and works great. Just not at home. Yes, I can see all of the other wifi networks avail, including mine.
Are you using wireless MAC filtering on your home router ? You would have to add the laptop's MAC address to the list. If you didn't have to do that with your other wireless devices, then you're probably not using filtering. It also could be an issue with the firewall on your Gateway.
