    I have a linksys wireless router. I have a laptop and a desktop. The
    desktop is hardwired tot he router and works fine. The laptop was connected
    wirelessly for a few months and was working fine until yesterday whe all of a
    sudden I could not connect to the router. I've tried connecting using the
    built in card, a plug in card and I've tried connecting wirelessly to both my
    modem and router and I cannot do any of the above anymore. What gives?
