Wireless G Router works through ethernet, but not wireless..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless (More info?)

Hi, I was just messing around with some cords on my computer and
accidentally unplugged my Linksys Wireless-G broadband router from my
computer. however, I've re-hooked it to the wall and my PC, and it
seems to pull up a good system fine. However, my laptop(with wireless
card) does not seem to recognize a wireless connection. What would be
the problem here? Thanks in advance, I know I shouldn't be unplugging
things, but oh well, right?

    Go to the router configuration page and check to see if the wireless
    was turned OFF on the router... Also, on your laptop, can you
    actually see a signal (using Site Monitor or other support functions
    of your client wireless card)?

    If you are not displaying any available networks do these things; Make sure
    ssid broadcast is ON (default setting) Repair the connection, locate the
    wireless card in the device manager and delete the profile, restart your
    computer. let xp reinstall the drivers. if none of that works try the laptop
    at some place with a guaranteed functional wireless connection (ie airport
    or cafe) to identify the problem further, (router or wireless adapter)

    tell me if it works?
