Can't get wireless network back

    I have lost the ability to connect to my home wireless network from a
    wireless-enabled notebook computer. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    The notebook has wireless built in, and was connected to my network. I
    wanted to install and check out a wireless card I am giving to my
    son-in-law, so I disconnected from the network in order to isolate the
    wireless card.

    After working with the wireless card, I want to bring the notebook
    computer back to 'normal' -- that is, connect to the network via the
    built-in wireless adapter. Because I had disconnected, I guess, I got
    the wireless icon in the system tray with the red X. When I
    right-clicked on that icon to view available networks, I expected to see
    the home network on that list, and then to connect to it. But it
    doesn't appear. I installed an updated driver, and it still doesn't. I
    am at a loss as to what to do. Any ideas?
