Windows 7: Computer not connecting to wifi.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Computer not connecting to wifi.

My computer used to connect perfectly to wifi. Then I tried setting up an access point through my laptop, using netsh commands, and now it won't connect at all. When I boot to Ubuntu however, it works fine. How can I get Windows to connect to wifi again?

With the limited information provided this is all I can do. I'd need to see a screen shot of your ipconfig/all to know more.

The two commands below should stop the hosted network.

netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

netsh wlan set hostednetwork [mode=]disallow

Manual hosted network set up method here.

Software for this to make it easier to set up hosted network.
