Lost wifi capability

  HauxtonPhil 10:03 02 Mar 2010

I have a laptop which has stopped functioning on wifi - just get the 'Aquiring Network Address' message but never connects. In case it was the hardware in the laptop I installed a Netgear usb connector, but get the same problem. All is well when connected by wire to the router, and other devices connect wirelessly to the same router.
Antivirus not reporting anything.

Any ideas?

Try going into Device Manager and uninstalling then reinstalling the laptop's network card driver - check manufacturer's website for latest driver first.
