My girlfriend and I have wireless at home and we both have laptops. I don't know what I did but I can't get back on the internet. The other computer is fine but mine isn't. When you go to the start button I lost the file that says Connect To. I don't know what I did. My computer says it has nothing to connect to. The other computer doesn't have a problem connecting. Hope you can help.
