Okay so I have a Lenovo Thinkpad laptop and im running on Vista-basic. My wifi was working fine but i accidentally turned the wifi switch off and I left it off over night. When I woke up and tried to turn it back on, my laptop wouldnt detect my router or any other devices. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, restoring the computer, restarting the computer ect. nothing is working. I have taken screenshots of the problem too. PLEASE HELP ME OUT

can we see a Device Manager screen shot

------------------------------------------------------------------------
{Device Manager}
Post back the results in device manager
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
windows 7
start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there

post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

what firewall do you have or have you had on the PC in the past - Norton, McAfee etc

also do this

------------------------------------------------------------------------
{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
Then run and install the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list
