Windows 7: WIFI not working

WIFI not working

I was watching Stargate SG-1 on Hulu when the internet just cut out. A screen popped up and said, "We're sorry, but we cannot stream your video at this time. Please try again later." Soon after, I realized my WiFi was out. Not only was it not connecting, but it wasn't even seeing the network; my phone and other devices see and connect fine.

I'm sorry but I don't remember everything I did, been working on it for a while. Here's what I do remember -

I tried disabling and reenabling my network card: didn't work.
Device manager says it is working fine, driver is up to date.
Restarted my computer: didn't work.
I ran the troubleshoot: no problems found.
Ran malware, spyware, and virus scans: just a few cookies and other small stuff, didn't fix the WiFi.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN wireless network card.

Can it see any other networks?

Try uninstalling the drivers, and installing a fresh copy.

Could you have accidentally turned off the card? Look on the side of your laptop for a switch.
