    I have an HP Pavillion dv2000 with Windows Vista. It has always connected to the internet just fine wirelessly as well as while connected via ethernet cable. Suddenly it won't connect wirelessly at home anymore. I'm not sure of the problem. I've checked the router..Everything seems fine. Other computers work fine in the house. If I connect the laptop using the ethernet cable it also connects fine.

    By the wireless card there is a little light indicating whether wireless is working or not.. It says it works, although it doesnt.... When I click "Connect to a Network" and select my home Network, (which shows a full signal) it goes for about a second to the connection screen and then right away to
    Windows cannot connect to (network)
    -> Diagnose the problem.

    Ive obviously "Diagnosed the problem" but nothing turns up.. So? What should I try?

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you should be able to re-enable encryption and reconnect.
