Hi guys, i am new to this thread so forgive me if i dont know how to do something.

Basically, my laptop won't connect to my wireless network, it just stopped connecting yesterday for no apparent reason, the wifi works with my phones and other laptop but not my laptop. I restarted my router, laptop did a system restore and factory restore but no luck.

I've spent ages trying to fix this, I would really appreciate some help
here are specs from ipcongif

Your wireless isn't working but your ethernet looks like it is. On an odd looking subnet. Can you use this command from a cmd prompt, and get replies?

The wireless is often enabled by a hotkey or switch on the front - excuse the basic questions but have you enabled the wireless?

Can you confirm that the ethernet is working?

If it is then try disconnecting the ethernet and do a *restart* not a shut down. That should reload Windows and not just a hibernation start.

If the wireless doesn't spring to life then you can try removing the wireless in device manager and then restart Windows again, let it re-detect the hardware.

But it could be hardware failure - transmitter/receiver - if it happened out of the blue.

Resetting the TCP/IP stack is another thing that you can try (google for command/directions).
