Disappearing Connection

My desktop uses a TEW-641PC (Trendnet) Wireless card. The other day my internet went out and instead of just saying "Unable to Connect" to the signal, the entire connection disappeared from the Networks and Sharing Center. For some reason My PC can't detect the network anymore, although my internet is up and running. Any ideas?

Check Device Manager for an error symbol as it may just be a driver error, the driver for the wireless card may simply need re-installing. If that's not the problem then possibly the Trendnet wireless card has failed and needs replacing with a new one.

If the PC is near enough to the router, use an ethernet cable instead of wireless, so if the wireless card has failed you don't need to buy a new one.
A wired connection is also more reliable and often faster than wireless.
