my laptop can see other neighbor wi-fi networks but not mine

For the past two days my HP notebook using windows 7 proffesional and Microsoft security essentials ant-virus has not been able to see my wi-fi network though i can see other networks and connect to them: Moreover, other PC's i.e laptops and desktops can connect to this home wi-fi network just not my pc.

Solutions I have tried:
1.tried to restore the system to the point when my pc was accessing my wi-fi perfectly: it didnt help
2.tried to boot in safe mode with networking: it didnt help
3.tried to delete all the wi-fi profiles in my pc: it didnt help
4.tried to uninstall and re-install wi-fi drivers (atheros): stil it didnt hep

P.S: i can connect and access internet to all other neighbor wi-fi networks...and other PC's can connect to my wi-fi network that my pc cant see.

I need help please
