No connections are available

I turned on my Netbook (Packard Bell NAV50, Windows 7) the other day and it would not connect to the internet. Not only won't it connect, but I can't even find any wireless networks, the icon in the bottom right just has a red cross. I'm currently using another laptop which can detect the network and next doors too so it is not a problem with the router. My PS3, phone, iPod etc also all connect fine. I've checked the fn f2 thing and that is definately on and working. Also when i click on "change adapter settings" in "network and sharing centre", it is there and is enabled and has the full green symbol icon but also has a red cross. I've checked loads of threads with no luck. Any ideas?

I'm assuming that it was working correctly until recently? Have there been any updates that may have caused this? If so you could try restoring the pc to an earlier date or uninstalling any suspect updates.

If not....

Have you tried connecting it directly to the router via ethernet and then making sure updates are up to date, including driver updates for the wireless adapter?
