Netgear WGR614 v7 wireless router
Compaq V6310US  notebook computer
NVIDIA nForce network controller
MS Vista OS
Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000

(Friend's computer. )

1. wireless mouse was working with this computer in the recent past. Mouse now not working. Tried unloading and reloading Intellipoint 7.1, then rebooting - no effect.

2. cannot connect to wireless router. New broadband wireless service, going through ARRIS Touchtone Telephony Modem TM502G, which is working correctly. When I try to go wireless through Netgear router, no connection.

How do I troubleshoot this? Since the mouse is not working, I'm guessing this is a problem with the notebook computer's integrated wireless network controller, which has worked in the past. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
