Lost Bluetooth and Wireless networking

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit:
Ive suddenly without warning and no prior problem lost Bluetooth and wireless networking. Ive gone as far as I can with my limited networking knowledge and have attached as much analysis as I can hoping some guru out there can help.
Services are all running:
  • COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
  • Computer Browser
  • DHCP Client
  • DNS Client
  • Network Connections
  • Network Location Awareness
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • Server
  • TCP/IP Netbios helper
  • Workstation
  • Bluetooth Srevice
  • Bluetooth Support Service
I've attached screen shots of relevant Device Manager, IPCONFIG, Xirrus WiFi Inspector Connection test and Control Panel wireless management pages.

My knowledge of wireless is insufficient to enable me to understand what might be the problem so I hope somebody out there can assist.

Well, the easiest answers are often the best. I had inadvertently moved the Network OF/ON switch to off.

I just moved out my apartment into a new house and I'm finally using my router's wireless ability. Unfortunately I just realized my router sucks. I think it may have some damage. Whenever two devices are simultaneously using the wireless, it only responds to one at a time. You might try to go...
