Well that was intersting, when I moved the laptop over by the router to plug it in, it connected (wirelessly) and worked fine. What's strange is that the laptop has worked fine in the past at the desk where I usually have it, but just recently it hasn't worked. Also the signal is showing up as very strong (4 out of 5 bars). Could there be interference from my phone or something. The desk isn't that far away from the router (only about 20 feet through a coule of walls).

yeah, certain things can cause interference like a cordless phone, microwave and others. did you or anyone else in your house get anything new that might interfere before you started having the problems? Eventhough it sounds like an interference problem you could still try updating the wireless card drivers.
