All of a sudden my laptop will not connect. My wife's computer connects and my laptop shows the network but will not connect. I have run checks on my wifi card, made sure the switch is on wireless - I can connect to other wireless networks in my neighborhood and I can connect with direct wire to router. I reset router, restarted my computer, restarted my wife's computer, updated my wireless driver. What else can I do?

Insure that your machine did not somehow get a conflicting IP address on the network -- open the command prompt window and type ipconfig into the window on each computer. Is your router providing the DHCP service to assign addressed or are you using static addresses?

Check to see that your router wireless security type, encryption, and security key are the same as on your computer.
