Hey,
Up until a few days ago, the internet was working fine. But now my laptop won't connect to the wireless network. I'm 99% sure it's with my laptop rather than the wireless hub as everyone else's computers will connect..

Here is my Ip Config:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]

C:\Users\Lydia>ipconfig

When did you first notice the issue? Any system changes?

About two days ago. I haven't downloaded or upgraded anything in months.. except perhaps itunes, although i can't see that having caused any damage... :/ Could a virus've stopped my bluetooth wireless connection from working?

First thing I would try is to disable IPv6.

Then, from the command prompt type the following

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /all

Try again.
