Just went through that same thing with wife's netbook not more than 30 minutes ago.
  • Flipped the wireless switch off/on, nope.
  • Tried "repair the connection", no go.
  • Deleted the wireless network adapter in Device Manager and rebooted. Windows discovered the 'new hardware' and set it up but, nope, still no go.
  • <--grrr-->
  • Flipped the router off for 15 seconds or so, flipped it back on, and within maybe 15 seconds my wife's netbook had automatically reconnected to the 'net as if nothing was ever wrong.
Worked for me. :)

Connecting at the same time or by itself?
Wireless or wired?
Has it ever connected and if so what was the circumstances when it stopped connecting?
Have you checked Device Manger to make sure network drivers and adapter are working?

  • (for Windows XP users)
  • Please click Start and click Run
    (for Windows Vista and 7 users)
  • Please click Start and select the white text box.
  • Type: devmgmt.msc and hit Enter
  • Look for any entries with a Yellow Exclamation Mark or Red X's



To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop

If that doesn't work we may be looking at a faulty nic card.

go to the computer manufactures website...support section...drivers and downloads...grab your wireless driver...
then use the device manager to uninstall the wireless adapter...reboot and windows will "find" the new hardware and offer to reinstall the drivers..point it to the one you just downloaded...
