Windows Networking/lost wireless connection

Question
Hello

Always worked fine.  Now lost the connection on my secondary pc.  When trying to connect/repair etc, it will not show my newwork -gabirose4 , but 2 neighbors.. Than somehow I get the gabirose4 , than get a message that the TCP/ip not installed..  
I use Windows 7 on main pc, and XP on the one I lost connection - wireless connection.  Use Bitdefender as my firewall - checked there could not see anything...  
I have a Linksysy router WRT54GS

If you can help or guide, thank you,   Gabe

Answer
Hi Gabe,
Try downloading and running the file in the link below

It will repair TCP/IP.  You can also try to update the drivers for your wireless card.

I would also highly recommend running malware scans on your computer.
I use
CCleaner(http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner)
Spybot Search and Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/)
Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/)
and what ever anti virus is installed.  If you need an antivirus program I recommend AVG (www.avg.com).  They have a free version that can be downloaded from free.avg.com

Makes to update Spybot, Malwarebytes and your antivirus.  CCleaner, Malware bytes and Spybot all have both free and paid versions.  Most antivirus also have both free and paid versions.

Please feel free to ask a follow up question if you need to.
