My laptop connects perfectly fine in public places via wifi, but at home it will not work, and I am using a NETGEAR N600 Wirless Router. Friends can connect to my router, but my laptop will not. Once I unplug the ethernet cable I lose connection. Any suggestions?

What system are you using? Does it work when you directly connect to your wifi after boot without the ethernet cable? – Nessuno Nov 2 '12 at 21:57
You seem to be missing a part of your post there ("Once I unplug the eth..."). Can you edit it to fill in the missing info? – Indrek Nov 2 '12 at 23:11
Sorry bout that. I said that once I unplug the ethernet cable I lose connection. – Jonathan Cordova Nov 2 '12 at 23:26
Have you tried not using the ethernet cable at all, and just trying to connect over Wi-Fi after rebooting, like @Nessuno suggested? (By the way, you can click on the edit link under the tags in your question to edit that part back in.) – Blacklight Shining Nov 2 '12 at 23:28
When you try to connect your laptop to your wireless network, how far do you get in the process? (Do you detect the network? What happens when you double-click on it?) All you've told us is that it doesn't work, and that's not a helpful problem description. – David Schwartz Nov 2 '12 at 23:28
