You need to check that your wireless chip is receiving on the same channel the Netgear is broadcasting on - or is set to roam and seek signals. Start by entering 192.168.1.1 in IE's address bar and going into the settings to check the broadcast channel.

Which model of HP? Somew laptops have tiny wireless switches which are sometimes easier to turn off than they are to find - others have the wireless icon on a Function key and you need that key with the Fn key to turn it on.
