Suddenly, my wireless connection is not working... except when it spontaneously does for no reason for a minute or so.
The light on the connection button is off, and I get the following messages when I try to connect or try to repair the connection:
-You are currently not connected to any networks
-This computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured.
-Windows did not detect any wireless network hardware.
The other computer in the house is picking up wireless. Occassionally, (maybe 3 times in the last week) I will notice suddenly that the connection light is on, and I can connect, but the next time I try, it is off again.
Have you tried putting the computer in to safe mode. I had the same problem with 3 other laptops but all the same model. I think it has something to do with an update. I put it into safe mode and rolled back the driver and its working fine

open your connections and find your connection and reconnect. if that does not work than you could have a problem with your wireless card . but some times all you have to do is turn your server off and unplug it for a minute and it will reset . good luck
The firewall is blocking the connection. Turn off all computers. Turn off router and modem. In this order, turn them all back on. First modem, wait one minute. Next router, wait one minute. Last, all computers. You should have connection now.
1.) Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> Administrative Tools -> Services.
2.) Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration, and double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
3.) On the General tab, after Startup type, change the startup type to Automatic.
4.) Start the service by clicking Start.
You can try to run a 'Winsock fix' http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html Sometimes internet settings just get messed up and this sets them to default.
I've personally also had a lot of problems with Norton. (The Symantec Corporate version is much better). If you are running Norton try their removal tool and see if you can connect after rebooting. Then reinstall your anti-virus software right away!
