So I am no expert at all - BUT I am hoping one of you are!

I was trying to download some printer drivers last night and it was all being annoying and sh*t because i've got stupid Windows 8 and had to go online to find correct drivers etc. But then after a while I just sort of gave up on trying to sort out the printer because it was frustrating and I was only half paying attention ... then something has happened to my WiFi connection.

I can see all the wifi networks

When I try to connect to the normal one with the correct password it tells me my settings are not correct.

I tell the computer to forget the network and then shut down and turn back on

I go back to the network and connect by pressing the button on the router so there can be no doubt that the settings should all be correct.

It won't connect


I try and connect my laptop to the internet by using my phone as a personal hotspot in case it is something with the router - It can see my phone but it won't connect.

I go into the network screens and make sure my adapter is working etc - I even roll back the driver in case something has gone wrong - Still doesn't work and says that it is working.

I go back to a system restore point in case the new Epson drivers for the printer have done something - NOTHING

The only thing I haven't done yet is connect it with an Ethernet although I can't see how that would solve my issue!

Literally any ideas welcomed!
