Windows 7: windows 7 adapter not connected

windows 7 adapter not connected

I have a sony vaio laptop model pcg-7183m with windows 7 installed on it. I was using it tonight just checking emails and a note flashed up on screen about wireless connection. Now I cannot connect to the internet as it says wireless internet is not connected and there is a big red cross.

I have tried disable and then enable but nothing changes. I even tried plugging the ethernet cable from my desktop into it and it came up with error 651. I have a netgear router for internet access and my desktop is working fine with this via the ethernet cable

I cant dowload anything onto the laptop as I cannot connect to the internet from the laptop.
Can anyone help

Have you tried doing a system restore to see if it resolves itself?

You might try resetting the router then use the ipconfig /all command.

Welcome to Windows 7 Support Forum,
Paul did you install OS7 from an existing Vista OS?

Were you able to connect before, did you install Windows 7 over an existing OS?

You must have inadvertantly bumped the switch, not the first time it's happened but the error message was strange. If only the error said that your internet switch was turned off, would be so much easier to fix.
