Windows 7: Laptop- Network connection Error

Laptop- Network connection Error

I need some help, I was planning on doing some college work during the weekend, but when I went to switch my laptop on it wouldn't connect to my hub. I have Windows 7 and my network connection symbol in the bottom right corner had a yellow star over it saying there wasn't limited access and the connection was unsuccessful. After restarting my hub and laptop, then trying a neighbours hub it was still unsuccessful. I have used the troubleshoot settings and the response says I have either a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter, or the Local Area Connection adapter. I am unsure on what this means and how to fix it .
Can anyone please help?

Welcome to SF,

I assume that this is a wireless connection issue or both? Pls correct me if I'm wrong....

If it is wireless issue please remove all network wireless profiles stored from your computer then try adding your school's SSID. If it's encrypted make sure to type the correct network key.

If that didn't fix the issue, please provide an ipconfig /all output:
Click on Start => in run or search box type cmd, press enter. From the command prompt (black screen), Copy and Paste these ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt . Please attach the .txt file to be found in your Local Disk 'C' on your next post.
