This may be an issue with the source. Is this a home network? Can you connect at a friends house/work/different locations? Need a bit more information here..

there is usually a switch or button on the front of laptops that turn wireless on or off. did you make sure this was on still and you didnt bump it and turn it off by accident?

If builders built buildings like programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.
