Re: Laptop's wireless stopped working? Help!
Solved, maybe? It turns out that a terrible McAfee antivirus update blocks users from connecting to the internet. I tried using the workarounds listed here http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocumen...33&id=TS101446 but still couldn't connect, so I used brute-force technique and disabled McAfee entirely.

So I can get online, but now my computer is at risk... so I'm going with Microsoft Security Essentials for protection until I can figure something else out.

Thank you for the replies.
