Your wifi settings are wrong . it must match what the router demands. wep/wpa./wpa2 and pass phrase.
the unstated OS drivers on your PC are corrupted.
is this XP or VISTA the 2 dead OS? with very hard drivers to find./?

Is your chipset wireless network program taking over?
Often an internal system program will take priority when connecting to wireless networks.
Think of it like siblings who squabble over attention.
If you can find any other programs which are acting in this manner, I'd suggest telling them "do not use this when connecting" and then see if you can then use your main program.
Also - is your network secured and / or hidden? Did you reset your router? Sometimes this helps, too. =D

It is because your wi fi network adapter not getting ip addresses from router.
For that connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then access it with following link.
type user name as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
then go to advaced and enable DHCP .
Then save and restart router.
Then go to your laptop go to my etwork places proeprty then right click on your wi fi adapter then proeprty then tcp ip and set ip get automatic.
Then it works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.

Try updating ALL Video Card & HDMI Drivers from manufacturers web site, that will probably be the best chance at a fix, this is a driver issue. Connect up this way... Start TV... plug in Cable to TV & PC, now, startup PC.
