Just redid my machine w/ vista ultimate. This was on here before, just redoing machine. So, I could connect to Internet w/ this machine and wirelessly w/ laptops after installation. Today started doing windows updates. Didn't pay much attention because tower was able to connect during these updates. Just turned on laptop and the wireless network is not listed - cannot connect to web. Looked at tower and I can get on the web but it doesn't show my network device.

I'm at a loss as to what to do. I've tried diagnosing but it found no issues. Tried updating nic drivers but it said I had the most recent. Do you think I need to install some linksys software for my wireless router? What changed? What should I look at, I'm stumped.
