I have never had trouble using my computer's wireless before, but a few days ago my problems started. I tried connecting to a router which I had never had trouble with previously, and it wouldn't connect. I can detect other wireless networks, I just can't connect to them. When I go to the Device Manager and look under my wireless adapter, it says that it isn't connected. I have searched for updated drivers and found none. Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? For the record, my computer is a Toshiba Satellite A665D and the wireless adapter is a "Realtek RTL819SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCE-E NIC".
