Wireless Network Connection..

I have a Dell inspiron 1750. I never had a problem with connection untill few days ago. I nevr installed anything or did any changes. All of a sudden i have no acces to the router/internet. I can see the access point with excellect signal, but when i try to connect to it it says unable to connect to ... I just wiped clean and re did the whole laptop, all fresh new drivers all around. It worked for few min when it came up to update, but ever since then no luck. I get as far as it asking for password, i enter it and no dice. I deleted the connection, shut down, accessed the router from my hard wired connected pc, changed SSID/and password, then rebooted laptop, still cannot connect. I litterally have tried everything; i checked all forums and microsoft website and tried everthing i could find. I even disabled the wireless miniadapter thats in win7 through cmd prompt. IM STUCK, PLEASE HELP!!

Reboot the router/modem....unplug it from the power outlet for 1 minute and then plug it back in and let it run through it's set up. Then you should be able to connect.

You never mentioned it...so had to ask the obvious... So my next question; did you try and reset the router using the tiny reset button. This set's the router back to default settings. Push it in and hold if for 15 to 30 seconds until the router flashes and then release the button.

i think it is a conflict, it cannot obtain ip address. in win 7 is there a virtual wireless adapter called mini something? that could be preventing me from connecting?

Same problem here. Seemed to come after a critical update, so I restored to just before that update, still nothing. It just went out! Did you ever find a solution?
