    Can you see your network in the list of those available?

    Have you set your wireless adapter to obtain an IP address automatically?

    Right click on your wireless adapter in network settings and disconnect, see if it picks up your router.

    Goto control panel, network and internet, network connections, right click on the wireless adapter, properties.

    Click on IP version 4, click properties and make sure that obtain IP address and obtain DNS server address automatically are both ticked.

    Go back to network and internet, network and sharing centre, manage wireless networks, right click your network and set to connect automatically when in range. Move it to the top of the list of networks from the right click menu.
