I have an HP zv6100 and have AT&T wireless and have had no problems connecting to the internet. I was just in Canada and used the wireless provided by the hotel with no problem. However, since then, the computer will not acknowledge any other wireless connection, including my home router and I cannot connect to anything.

Any clue what may have happened or solutions?

Thanks in advance.

Also do a right click on the wireless icon in the taskbar by the clock and choose "view available wireless networks".
Make sure that yours is shown and that it is at the top of the list for connection.
