At my place we have two desktop PCs and a laptop using the same wireless network (D-Link router).

Tonight, all of a sudden one of the PCs (with Vista) stopped connecting to the network and won't connect again.

I've deleted the network profile, found it again and still can't connect. We've rebooted several times, reset the router -- nothing.

My PC, which I'm typing this on, has full strength and no problems accessing the same network. Same with my girlfriend's laptop. I'm XP, she's Vista.

I must admit I have no idea what to do, have searched online and tried as many different things as I can with no success, including fiddling with the wireless receiver plugged into the PC.

Please help!

I really don't know why but after the PC was turned off yet again I turned it back on, tried to diagnose the problem, couldn't fix it, tried to find the network, found it, tried to connect and it worked. Weird.
