Came home from work and I was unable to connect to the Internet with my desktop. All other devices work fine. I normally connect to Wi-Fi since I don't have a 50 foot Ethernet cable. I haven't made any software or hardware changes recently, yet Windows is telling me that the Wireless Network Connection is not connected. I cannot detect any wireless networks on it. There is a red X and full green bars next to the icon. I'm using a 802.11n Wireless LAN Card. I have tried restarting both my computer and my router and modem to no avail. The card is about 4 years old - did it die on me?

Very possible it died but here are a few things to check

 

1. In lan connections right mouse click on the wifi card and make sure its enabled.

2. download the most recent drivers and load them

3. review the card under network devices in device manager to see what its status is.

Try forgetting all the networks and see if you can find them. If that doesn't work go into Device manager, find your wireless card, right click, click Uninstall, click OK, and then reboot. See if you can find the networks.
