Router suddenly stopped working wireless

Last night my router was working fine, and then all of a sudden my Internet stopped working. when i woke up i figured out that with a Ethernet cord the Internet works, but going wireless doesn't work. its not in my computer since it also wont work on my ps3.

When i try to connect to it, it either says it cannot connect, or connects and says i have Internet but doesn't let me actually load anything.

Remove all network wireless profiles stored from your computer then add your own SSID. If it's encrypted make sure to type the correct network key.
Easy Way to Delete Wireless Network Profile in Windows 7

If it didn't help please try the next tasks:
You may try a System Restore, pls see this Tutorial by Brink. Restore it to a point where you were able to wireless connect.

List and Name all Anti-Virus, Security or Firewall Software installed from the problematic computer.

If your laptop has a Wireless Switch on the side, verify that it's 'On'.
You may also try a combination of FN key (FN+F1 or FN+F2 or FN-F8) from your keyboard to activate your wireless connection.

Post an ipconfig /all of the computer in question for review.
Click on Start => in run or search box type cmd press enter (run as Admin for Vista and 7). From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results onto your Post.

I think the system restore fixed it, it is working now.

Thank you!
