Default Windows 7 wireless problem

Good morning all,

My girlfriend's Toshiba laptop, which runs Windows 7, suddenly stopped working on our wireless network, whilst mine still has no problems accessing it.

The network is still visible, however there is an orange dot over the signal strength icon on the task bar.

I tried the troubleshooter but it still will not connect to that, or any other, wireless network. Can you offer any advice at all, I have never really used Vista or Windows 7 so I am a little lost!

Thanks in advance!

So as an update it appears that the laptop will connect to other wireless networks, just not our home one. Like I said before my computer and other computers on the network are working just fine.

Any suggestions about how to get to the bottom of this?

Well... no replies here but I managed to solve the problem myself. Despite the fact that all the other computers on the router were connected, I unplugged it and turned it back on and everything was fine.
