Can you connect using your ethernet or USB lead?

If so then ensure that the wireless setting all match up. It's possible that your router has reset all setting so that if you have changed any WEP keys they may have been set to default.

You may also find that your admin username/password has been reset to the default.

Posted that in the wrong thread. Ignore it.

Try opening a command prompt, Start > Run > Cmd, and run the system file checker by typing "sfc /scannow" without the quotes and hit return. You may be asked for your Windows CD so have it ready.

There is a space between sfc and /scannow
