I have just gotten a brand new Windows 7 computer, which worked perfectly the first day. I turn it on a few days later and it won't detect <i>any</i> networks, not even my home network. Any ideas

If it's a laptop is the wireless switched on?

Your router probably has a LED showing the status of the wireless network. Does it appear to be working?

The router is working. I'm trying to turn on the wireless on the computer, but all it says is "WLAN: Disabled" or "WLAN: Off".

check the sides of your computer for a wireless enable switch,check the front aswell,if there isnt one,there should be one somewhere on the function keys.see if you can find it

Or a button or pressure switch above the keyboard.

If this still hasnt solved the issue you could try this

1-Turn off your router,then unplug it,put in a ethernet cable in the socket on the router and connect it to the computer,giving it a direct connect,get on your computers manufacture site and update the wireless network adapter,it might be outdated,corrupt or most likely,just uninstalled.
