My laptop was okay last night but this morning it does not wish to know about connecting to the internet via wireless.

Any suggestions please as to where to start...

When you go to Start/Connect to/Show all connections - all I see is Local Area Connection box - I seem to recall it used to show all available connections.

The other strange thing is I do not use a password but when I switch the laptop on I now get the password box.

Thanks very much in advance.

As something seems to have got a bit messed up, I'd try running "System Restore" to see if that resolves it.

Tried system restore "success" thanks very much for the tip. Cannot figure why it happened in the first place but all okay now.
Thanks again
