hi,,,, check to see if the wireless card is ok in device manager,,,, look for yellow triangles or red x's,,,, then look to see if its still enabled, it could have got disabled some how,,,, type in network sharing centre into start menu search box and then click on manage network connections on the left,,, right click the wireless cards icon and click enable,,, btw,, can you still connect with an Ethernet cable ??
good luck.

hi,,,, enter services (type it into start menu search box) and make sure Windows Wireless Service is running and set to auto,,,, then look in dependencies and make sure everything in there is running and also set to auto,,, Extensible Authentication
Protocol, Native WiFi Filter, NDIS Usemode I/O Protocol and Remote Procedure
(RPC). Make sure they are running.
if non of this works then try this reg tweek i found,,,, backup the registry first though,,,,
1. regedit
2. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE]\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ndisuio
3. Change Start to "0x000000002 (2)"
4. Restart
i have noticed with this fix that if the value i set at 4 ,,, then it seems to work
good luck.
