Help! My laptop never used to have issues with connecting to routers. But ever since we replaced the router, my laptop can no longer connect to the wireless. My brother's laptop can still connect to the wireless. Although my laptop cannot detect my wireless, it is able to detect my neighbour's wireless.
Also tried connecting LAN cable to my laptop to the router, I am unable to get internet access as well. I tried repair, fixing the internet connection but my laptop is unable to fix it. im running on windows vista x32 and a d-link router 192.168.0.1 . here is a snapshot of the cmd/ipconfig/all page from my brother's laptop that can connect to the wireless connection at home:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

I logged onto 192.168.0.1 and these are the details I got of my router:
IP Address: . . .
MAC Address 00:24:01 e:ad:05
IP Address: 22.214.171.124
MAC Address: 00:26:5a:56:a3:bf
Duration D: 00 H: 04 M: 00 S: 00

if anyone has a clue on how i should troubleshoot this i would really appreciate it! thank you!!!
Sorry i'm like a tech retard so if you have any ideas, could you provide detailed steps to troubleshoot this thank you!!!!
Another update: I tried importing the network settings from my brother's laptop using a USB key but it did not work. I imported the network settings to my laptop and it told me that the wizard could not create the wireless connection. However, it shows up if I click under "manage wireless networks" however.
