Windows 7: Computer not connecting to wifi.

Computer not connecting to wifi.

My computer used to connect perfectly to wifi. Then I tried setting up an access point through my laptop, using netsh commands, and now it won't connect at all. When I boot to Ubuntu however, it works fine. How can I get Windows to connect to wifi again?

netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

netsh wlan set hostednetwork [mode=]disallow

Manual hosted network set up method here.

Software for this to make it easier to set up hosted network.
