Problem with my Laptop Wireless connection

I have a Compaq Presario V6171CL Laptop. I was online playing a game when I was interupted by one of my Children. She wanted me to print her a Picture well when I tried I kept getting an error message Basically my Laptop was having trouble communicating with my printer. Being that it is a brand new printer I assumed it might be an issue with the printer. Well one of the remedies was to Uninstall the Printer Driver and reinstall. Well when I did for some strange reason my wireless capability vanished also. Now my Laptop isn't even locating my Broadcom Wireless card. I tried reinstalling the driver, reseting the Bios to factory spec,and just about anything I can think of has anybody had this problem before can anyone help

Too many weird things happened to make any sense out of it. Try making windows "go back" to when it was still running good. You can try this "quick" fix: If you have enabled Windows' SYSTEM RESTORE mode, then restore the system to a date earlier than when the problem occurred. For help on this repost.

    so, have you actually tried my solution: restore the system to a date earlier than when the problem occurred using SYSTEM RESTORE? do you need further help?

Bad connection

Hi i'm ryan, To play online you will need to be close to a wifi location. If you have the internet you will need a wireless router to connect the PSP to. I just recently got a wireless router and since its in the house i have 100% signal connection. If you are using a wifi that you are picking up that is not yours the signal might be weak, or interupted and you will loose connection.
