I previously had a wireless LAN network (no router) which i would use to connect my iPhone to, but it all of a sudden stopped working due to a problem which i deduced to being a host error (the host being my laptop). I also get the error 'Host Unreachable' when using WinSCP to SSH from iPhone to Laptop.

Now, i can now longer even see my created network.
In addition, i cannot create a wireless network via the wizard, with the error: "The wizard could not create a wireless network".

I have no idea what could be causing this, nor what i did exactly which has caused this change.

Thanks in advance.

My first thought would be to double check that you didnt accidentally turn off your wireless adapter. I would also check the device manager for errors and uninstall and reinstall the wireless drivers.

Is your laptop connected to the internet in any way? If so do you have a connection there?
