Question Sony VaioPCG-7M1L WiFi/Internet Not working! Help!

Hello =)

Soo... here's the deal. I have a wonderful laptop that was given to me for my graduation! My brother decided he wanted to mess with the internet settings... and ta da, here we are! One year later and I still haven't fixed it!

I have a new laptop but would like to give my Sony to my sister. Please help!

He messed with the settings and I haven't been able to log on to the internet since! I know my wireless is working because I'm constantly on it with my new laptop.

Please bear with me as I'm not computer savy at all.

The Sony picks up the Wireless. I know it because it shows the name of my network. But that's as far as it goes. I try to log on and it says:

"Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again."

On the Network Connections page this is what it says under each:

Wireless Network Connection
Not connected, Firewalled
Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 220BG Network Connection

Local Area Connection
Network cable unplugged, Fire...
Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection

1394 Connection
Connected, Firewalled
1394 Net Adapter

I'm not sure if this is too much info or not enough. I can certainly provide more info if anyone needs it!

The computer has been reset to it's factory settings too, I thought that would help but it didn't!

Thanks in advance =)
