If you look at the Details of your wireless connection, is the IP that you got through DHCP in your normal range?
Sometimes the dhcp through wireless gets messed up and it could help to reset the wireless by disconnecting its power for 30 seconds and turning on again...
I have no idea where to find my IP. Could You help me with that?
And I have already unplugged and replugged my router for hours to no avail. The other computers are also connected wirelessly.

Mmmm if the others are wireless and work fine after reset but this one doesn't... It is somehing else.

Reboot in Safe mode w/networking to see if that works? Press F8 repeatedly while booting, to get the safe mode choices...

Jwang,
From the time wi-fi was working and you noticed that it wasn't, did you install/uninstall anything or make any hardware changes?

Good question. I did not do anything at all. I even just disabled my mcafee firewall but to no avail. I really don't wanna pay someone to fix it over the phone...

I fixed it!!!! Oh my goodness I'm so happy! For anyone else who possibly has or will have this problem I hope they find this thread! Just search "reconfigure linksys router" on google (make sure u find your own model). Follow their instructions and RENAME your router, enter the password and you're good!!

Congrats! Haven't read that thread yet but let's hope you don't have to rename a router all the time when 1 of 3 pc's don't reach it anymore....
