Windows 7: Windows 7 suddenly killed my internet connection.

Windows 7 suddenly killed my internet connection.

Wheter or not this is the right section to post this in, I desperatly need some help. Yesterday, I was playing an online game (minecraft) but that doesn't really matter, does it? Sudenly my internet connection dropped away, it doesn't even show the name of my router anymore. The name of the router is Dupon. What my first thought was, restart the computer, I did that and it I got a router incoming (Dupon 2) wich doesn't exist, I restarted again and it became Dupon 3. I unplugged the router and tried to solve the problems (oon the Dupon 3 network) but it didn't work, the same thing, no internet acces still pops up. The only thing I can do now is plug in an internet, that works but it's not too handy. I know it is the laptop because I have another one running XP and it has no trouble getting on the internet at all.
I would really really apreciate some help
Thanks

-Nick

I can't delete any because there are none except for the nonexistant one.

Hello,

Does your laptop has a physical switch to turn on/off wireless? Have you tried the FN+F2 or F8 or F9 combination from your laptop?

Are you using a 3rd party wireless manager to connect?
