Windows 7: Cannot Identify Network - Wireless Router

Cannot Identify Network - Wireless Router

Computer: Dell Inspiron Switch
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Router: Verizon FiOs supplied router, WPA-2 Personal security
Wireless adapter: Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 1030

Hey Sevenforums,

Up until today, I have had no problems connecting to my wireless router and the internet. All of a sudden, I am not able to connect to the same network and when I try, I get either a "Windows was unable to connect" message or it connects but cannot get internet access.

I've tried the windows troubleshooter, which was unable to find a solution.
I've tried a system restore, same problem.
I've tried disabling firewall and avast!.
The flushdns.bat did not work.
Resetting the router fixed it, but the same problem would occur after a while (while playing a game offline, leaving and coming back after a few minutes, turning on my laptop the next day.
Everyone else in the house can connect with no issues (10 devices total including my laptop). I'm the only one on Win 7 if that means anything.
I can connect to my school's WPA2 Enterprise secured wireless network.

Wired connection is not possible at the moment.
I'm thinking it is a router issue but I have no access to the settings so I would like to make sure if it is only an issue on my side.

Thank you for your time.
