      Is your laptop wireless enabled?
      Don't understand what you mean by boot file, windows isn't loading?

      If you cannot get the Notebook to boot into windows then there is no way to connect it to a network.

      You need to install the OS from a disc.

      You can actually, its not for beginners but you can use something like -
      Bart's Network Boot Disk

      I believe there are also versions available which work from a USB drive for machines that do not have a CD drive.

      So you are saying that your netbook is connected to the network? If so, why do you want to reboot it via the network? Why not do it manually?

      If it isn't connected to the network then you will not be able to reboot it via the network.

      Maybe if you explain exactly what you are trying to do, we would be able to offer some meaningful help. You started off saying you were trying to set up a wireless network, but you seem to have departed from that to something else.
