      Laptop wireless stopped working

      I've been with sky for a few months now and this is the first real problem I have had.

      I have a Sagem router connected to my PC with an ether net cable which is working fine.
      I also have a laptop which was using wireless connection.
      I've never had a problem with this set up before and have always been able to just boot up and log on with both machines.
      Today however my laptop is refusing to access the wireless network.

      I have tried all the basic tricks, rebooting everything etc.
      The PC reconnects fine
      But still, just the laptop will not connect.

      I'm confused.

      You have not switched the adapter in the laptop off by mistake have you?

      There is a chance that a new network is interfering with your signal. Download Inssider from the link below and use it to discover the networks in your area. Choose a channel as far from those in use as possible.
