I just bought a laptop in July (Sony Vaio VGN-CR520D). The internet connection has worked, however a couple of days ago it just stopped working. I am trying to connect to a D-Link router. Any ideas as to what can be the issue.

P.S I have also tried connecting it directly to the back of the modem, and that also was unsuccessful.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Is your WiFi connection reporting that it is connected? Click on Start, control panel and Network Connections. This control panel will list all your network connections and give you a quick status, (ie Connected, Limited Connection, or Not Connected). If it does say its connected, right click on the WiFi and left click on Status. Sometimes ADSL routers can get confused especially after a power surge. Turn your router off and then back on. This will force the router to re-initialize, give it about 3 to 4 minutes to finish. If other systems are still working on the internet ok, then obviously this will not help.

If you know how you also should check the router and make sure it is getting its signal ok.
