Click on start - Go to control panel -- Double click on network and sharing center.
You can find Network discovery and password sharing.Make sure these 2 options are "on".
Try yo connect to your network.

Let me know the status.

Thank you!!!

Use a wired connection temporarily and follow L8_
tians directions and after you have done it reboot your computer and see if it works.I have been trying to get my grandaughters G6000 WLAN to work for almost six weeks and it is now working thanks to L8-tians method.
I had downloaded another driver for it to day but it did not work.as soon as i did the reboot the driver started downloading.so lets hope it lasts.

Thanks L8-tians your a star.

Spoke to soon.Thought that I would give it a reboot before packing it away,And it is not working again.What a pain in the neck.

Looks like a common fault with the G6000.
Another method that works is to buy a Usb Wireless Dongle and use that.
