Has the wireless been switched off?

depending on make switch or key combination to switch card on.

check in device manager for errors against the wireless card drivers.

Thankyou All. While trying to do as suggested by Fruit Bat with device manager I'm not sure what I did but it suddenly connected?! I'll be back if it dies again but all help much appreciated. Lottie.
