    The Internet on my Toshiba laptop suddenly has stopped working.

    If I connect the laptop directly to the router the internet works ok.

    Othe computers work ok using the same router.

    Ant suggestions as to how to fix this. I have tried a system restore - no joy with that.

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.
