can't connect to wifi

Hello,
I can't connect to wifi.
My pc shows the icon with a yellow star.
When I try to connect I get this error:
Can't connect to [My wifi name.].
Lan works perfectly fine.
Yesterday I still had connection but now I don't.
I got these network adapters:

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5750g 64-bit.

Well; first for something simple; I would try removing all 3 network adapters shown; reboot; then re-add/re-install the adapters then reboot again and see if that solves the issue for you. If not; try power cycling your router/network equipment including any routers and modems. Unplug them, wait about a minute or so; then plug them back in with plugging in the modem(s) first; letting those boot fully; then plug the router(s)/network equipment back in and let that boot. Sometimes what happens is they just need a simple reset as thats just what happens with computer equipment from time to time. If neither of these work; post back and we can go from there.

Turn your other wifi devices off that connect to the internet. Left click open network sharing computer icon. Choose your internet connection, select connect. Do not type a password there. Now hold your wps button until it lights up, then wait. Light will turn off eventually.

If the wifi is working now, don't do what I said in my other post. Most likely that your internet provider causing wifi to drop.
