Wireless Network Connection - not connected

I have a Toshiba Satellite R15 - I am able to connect wirelessly in my area but a couple of days ago I was online and the site I was on said they were having a server error. It knocked me offline and froze my internet up - later, I couldn't get back online. It may have been a coincidence??

I've always seen secured and unsecured connections with config free which is what came w/this laptop but now I am getting messages on my taskbar that say wireless connection unavailable and wireless network connection - wireless network not connected. Can this be, since it has been working fine this way before and then absolutely nothing show up in the wireless LAN area on the connection screen of Config Free? I have refreshed the network list, updated the driver, and checked my computer wireless switch - no help. Under the connectivity doctor it shows a diagram of PC, local network and then internet. I am getting a caution triangle that says line status - disconnect but it isn't as far as I know. I tried to figure out the possible solutions but I didn't get anywhere.

I even did a complete recovery and it still didn't come back up.

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!

1. You can try to disable and re-enable your network connection a couple of times, sometimes that helps, if not the try the second step.

2. You can try to use the windows wireless zero configuration utility to netword instead of the config free, I have always had a problem using config free. If you go to start>control panel>network connections then right click on your wireless connection and click properties, then click on the wireless network tab and check the box that says,"Use windows to configure my wireless network settings". Then click ok. disable and re enable your wireless connection. Then right click your wireless connection and click properties and then view wireless networks. click the wireless network you want to connect to and then click the connect button.

Let me know if this works
