    please please please can someone help me! my laptop was fine last night then when i switched on this morning there was no network connection.

    the troubleshooter tells me "there may be a problem with the driver for the wireless nerwork connection adaptor" or "a network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken"

    well, i'm using the other laptop which has been able to connect so i'm guessing something must have happened to mine to stop it connecting......

    any ideas.....it was absolutely fine last night so i can't understand what's gone wrong :unsure:

    Is it wireless?
    If it is maybe check to make sure the wireless switch hasn't been turmed off.

    And if it is not wireless then there is a good chance that your network card has gone belly up. This happened to me on my desktop computer.
