wireless doesn't show up on list

someone turned my router off yesterday and now the list of available wireless networks doesn't show my network. It shows some othrs not mine.

It's not the range or signal.

Any ideas? Thanks

EDIT: If a screenshot of anything would help let me know

SOLUTION:
For me this was just following smackheadz advice, which was

'to delete your profile go to network and sharing,manage wireless networks,then right click and remove.'

After that I rebooted and my wireless network showed up on my available connections list.
I clicked connect and entered my network key and it connected.

It's a Siemens SE 587 router.

It's on. I'm on a wired connection to it right now.

Yes. I've been connected to the router for like 2 weeks now without a problem. The lease time I had was for 1 year.

The thing is when it's connected The name of my nectwork on the wireless shows up and it shows that I'm connected to it.

However if I get disconnected my network doesn't show up. The other networks of my neighbours still do but mine seems to disappear.

Hi. Thanks for helping. Er...I don't want to do anything too drastic incase I mess up my sisters wireless connection.

I'm not that technically minded so if you guys need some screen shots of anything let me know.

How do I delete a profile?

Yes. I was connected to my router last night until someone ( ) turned it off.

After I turned it back on all i get is that orange icon and the only networks that it shows are my neighbours.
