It means there is no connection and/or it thinks your wireless card is disconnected.

Your router is probably working just fine.

Get on your wireless computer and open up control panel and then network connections. See if your wireless connection is there.

Also you can check device manager which can be found by opening up your Control Panel and then System. Click the hardware tab and then click the device manager button. See if your wireless card is in there.

If it isn't you may need to re-install your drivers.

Place your mouse over the Wireless Network Connection icon found in your system tray at the bottom right right hand corner of the screen. <right click> on it and select repair. Let the utility repair the connection by resetting settings and connections. Do all of this before you reinstall any drivers.....

your "wireless computer" problably is using a wireless receiver or a wireless card, so just plug it back in and see if your computer detect it, if it does then go to network connections "look for it in control panel" then see if you see your router in there, if you don;t then you might be out of the wireless range, or you need the driver for your wireless receiver. if any of thses is the problem, then goto start then click on "run" and type services.msc

then go all the way to the bottom and restart the wireless zero configuration service, then unplug your wireless receiver and plug it back in, then once again try to see if you see your wirelesss router.

if any of this works, then get a straight throught cable and using to connect your "wireless computer" to your wireless router by using the cable and see if you get connection, if you don;t then log in your wireless router and then go to status and see if your router is getting an ip address and dns addresses from your ISP, then set up an static ip address for your computer,

your router's ip address is problaly 192.168.1.1 so set up an static ip address for your computer such as 192.168.1.50 and then also set up the dns addresses to be equal to the ones being used by your router.
then try to connect to your router again and see if that fixes your problem.
