My wife's laptop wireless internet access stopped working. The wireless router is working fine for this desktop and another laptop.
Vista reported that the wireless capability was turned off. The gadget icons on the right of the screen showing temperatures in two locations and three stock prices reported that service was not available.
I found a switch on the front edge and moved it off and on. The gadget icons on the right of the screen started working. IE and FireFox were still unable to reach www.google.com. Control Panel > Network Connections > Wireless Network Connection 2 Status > reports no connection. Diagnose still reports that the wireless capability is turned off.
But, the gadgets are reporting temperatures and stock prices!!!!!
What the heck?????????
