I am at my wits end.  I have an old Gateway laptop running Mint 16.  Intel Dual core T2060 @ 1.6 GHZ 2 GB RAM 120 GB SSD.  This has been a fully functioning, reliable system ever since I upgraded to Mint (from Win 7).

 

Yesterday, I was doing some work with dd-wrt, so I turned off the WiFi and used the ethernet connection to tinker with a router.  When I finished, I turned WiFi back on.  Now I cannot connect to my WiFi!

 

I can see the SSID, I can click to connect to it, it looks like it is working to connect, but then never does.

 

Any help is appreciated, even a link to a step-by-step troubleshooting guide.

Um, duh.  Step one:  Reset your router.  Oh, yep, that works!  Sorry for the useless post.
