I mistakenly turned off my wifi via FN+F8 . When I turned it back on I no longer could connect to my wireless connection. Ive tried restarting both my laptop and router but still no connection. I've tried in safe mode with networking but it doesn't work either. I also restored my system to a previous date but that didn't work. I have no clue what went wrong in those few secs, but now I can't get on my network. I can get on with my phone, and other laptop but not my toshiba. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Win 7 (64bit)

Solved it. Seems there's an issue that occurs with the power management m setting and your wireless performance. I had my laptop on "Balanced Performance," but when I switched it to "High Performance" and made sure the wireless adapter setting was on high my wireless connection finally worked. I guess when I mistakenly toggled my wifi on an the off it triggered the issue in Win 7 involving power settings and your wireless connection. Hope this helps anyone else in the future.
