I have an older Dell Latitude laptop, with XP on it.
I've had it for a few years. The wireless internet connection has worked great, until now.
I took it on vacation where the resort had a LAN connection, that I had to plug into the computer to hook to the internet. It worked fine.
I just tried to use it and it wouldn't connect. In the menu bar, there's a LAN icon. When I put the cursor over it, I get a message that states something like "Local Area Connection Unplugged"
I should be able to on "view network connections", find my home wireless network, and connect.
Now, when I click on "view network connections" all it shows is the LAN, and there are no wireless connections to be found.
Before the trip the wireless worked great. Now it doesn't work at all.
Did plugging a network cable into the computer disable something? If so, how can I enable whatever it is that I disabled?
I'm sure that it's something simple, but I can't figure it out.
