I canot see any Wireless Networks in Windows 7. Everything was working 10 minutes ago and suddenly it's stopped working. I know it's not a problem with the network itself because the computer I am using to type this is connecting to the internet fine on the wireless.

A help site said to upgrade my firmware but why should I have to do that if the internet was working fine 10 minutes ago?

I'm using an HP G62 laptop. I have even installed the Wireless Lan Driver (http://h30434.www3.h...ton/td-p/336943 < link on bottom post). Installed it and still nothing.

Any ideas for what might be wrong?

Problem solved. The F12 key doubles as a wireless on/off switch. In order to press the actual F12 key I have to hold down the 'FN' key.

Just FYI: The FN key is function, which is a key used to access the secondary keys, meaning if a key has 2 usages, the FN key allows you too access the second one.
