    "Problem with wireless adapter or access point"

    Last night, the Internet connection on my laptop was working flawlessly, but today, I cannot connect to the Internet. After using the Troubleshooter, it tells me there is a "Problem with wireless adapter or access point." but the WiFi is working for every other device in the house. I have tried rebooting my router, to no avail. Also, I checked Device Manager, and everything was working properly, and I do not have iTunes or McAfee installed. Is there a fix for this? Please help.

    Have you tried restarting your laptop? Sounds really obvious but some people forget.
