    For the WiFi router in your dwelling is it on? Turn it off an on. See if that works for you.

    Remove the WiFi Driver from Windows 7 but don't delete it. Reboot the laptop and this will allow Windows to re-install the driver. If that doesn't work go to the manufacturer web site and get the latest driver. When doing so uninstall prior driver but delete driver this time. Reboot then install the down loaded WiFi driver.
