Laptop has stopped connecting/won't connect to the wireless internet

Post by Kells12579 on 25th August 2012, 8:52 pm

Hi!

My laptop is a Dell that runs Windows 7. It has never had a problem connecting to the wireless internet at my parents' house. It has been connected for the last two weeks no problem while I have been on vacation here. My iphone is connected to the wireless along with other wireless devices in the house. I did try restarting the router a few times and also my computer a few times.

My laptop is able to connect up to the internet through the router when you use an ethernet cable.

I have tried a system restore to a date last week and that didn't help.

It was fine last night and today it just wasn't connected.

I tried a tutorial from the microsoft homepage and nothing helped there. (It's called Wired and wireless network connection problems in windows)

If you have any ideas, that would be great.

What model Dell laptop?
Make sure that the wireless is turned on. There may be a physical switch on the front or side of the laptop or you may have to use the Fn key to activate.
