Hi
This problem has happened on both mine and my brothers laptops,We both have windows vista.Yesterday AVG virus update manger was down so i did some searching on the internet and found out how to fix it by downloading a few updates.I downloaded the updates on both mine and my brothers laptops.Well today i shutdown my laptop and then decided later on i wanted to go on it agian,however now I cant connect to the internet using wireless.It comes up with our network but when I go to connect to it,it says it cant,this also happens on my brothers laptop.At the moment I'm using a cable from my laptop to the router so i can type this message.I have a feeling it is linked to me downloading some updates for AVG,as I found out how to fix it from someone on a international fourm, so hopefully I dident download a virus :(

Why don't you uninstall AVG & then try ? I got sick of the constant re-registering on AVG. I had an issue once with AVG conflicting with XP & AMD socket 754 motherboard, had to do a re-install to fix. I now use Avira Antivir, free & no registrations required, + uses less system resources.
