My wirless LAN adapter is not connecting to any of my near wireless routers. I opened up Device manager, and checked under "Network Adapters"; it's not showing up. (I can see my Ethernet LAN adapter though). This is very frustrating because it was working fine just before I went to sleep last night and I have verified that other devices can see the wireless router.
Here are some things I have tried:
Any suggestions or ideas would be great.

Hi and welcome to the forum!
What happens when you hit Fn-Fn5? Do you see wireless radio indicator?
How about in the BIOS? Press F1 to enter the BIOS -> Config -> Network -> Wireless LAN and Wimax Radio -> Make sure it's set to "on".
Keep us posted.

Thank you for your response and welcome.
I have tried both of those things that you mention.

Ok I got it working again. It required me to shutdown my computer.
Restarting my computer was the first thing I tried actually, but apparently full shutdown was the magic sauce that was needed to make it work. I'm pretty annoyed but it's good that it's working again.
