your LAN is basically your wired connection, if you're connecting via wireless, LAN has nothing to do with your ability to connect to internet/network.

you want to go to start > run > type in: cmd /k ipconfig /all

in the window that pops up you want to make sure that your wireless adapter has a defined network mask address, if it doesn't, it means it's not connecting to your wireless
