I have an HP laptop running windows vista. I've used the wlan on it to wirelessly connect to the net for along time with no problems. Yesterday, I hooked it up to an ethernet cord connected to my router so that I could do some work on both computers at the same time. The laptop would then not connect to the internet. When I unhooked it and turned the wlan back on, it was showing the red X on the bottom right and would not connect to the net. If I click on connect to a network, it shows my wireless network is connected but has limited access. In Network and Sharing Center, its showing a red X between the computer and the internet. When I diagnose the problem, I get three suggestions:
"The network adapter "Intel Pro/ 100 Network Connection" is experiencing driver or hardware related issues"
"Make sure your Internet Protocol Bindings are correct", and
"The network adapter "Intel Pro/ Wireless 3945abg Network Connection" is experiencing driver or hardware related issues".
I've tried reconnecting the ethernet cord to get on the net but then it only shows three ways to connect, dial up and my two sprint card connections.
