I have an Asus G74Sx laptop, and recently reinstalled Windows 7 64-bit on it.

After the reinstall, everything was working fine. I was happily browsing the interwebs. 

But today, I turned on the laptop and the wifi no longer finds nor can connect to my network. 

I have repeatedly unplugged the router/modem and plugged them back in.

I have updated my wireless drivers from the Asus website. 

I even did a system restore. 

 

The internet works fine on the desktop, however, it is directly connected, not through wifi.

UPDATE: Fully reinstalled Windows 7 all over again, completely erasing the harddrive. 

Installed the Wireless Driver so that wifi works. 

When I click on the network I want to connect to, it doesn't pop up with a password prompt. It just fails to connect.

Update: Solved! T'was a modem problem. LAN worked, wifi didn't, now all is well again. 

 

(THREAD CLOSED) 

((as there doesn't seem to be a button to close it))

 

Thank you for offering help. :3 In the end I called our internet provider, and he did a couple of things and one of those things worked.
