Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate "Not connected-No connections are available"

Windows 7 Ultimate "Not connected-No connections are available"

Recently, I decided to restart my computer because the installation of Fallout: New Vegas required it, once my computer booted back up, there was an X on the wireless icon and it would not detect any of the wireless networks around me. I have tried rolling back and updating my drivers but that did not work. After searching around the internet, I decided that I would need personal help and that I wasn't going to get anywhere doing that so I came across this forums and I've heard that it had a good reputation so I'm hoping this was the right place to go.
