For some reason, my laptop can no longer establish a wireless "n" connection to my router. I have another computer on the network that can. How can I restore wireless "n" capability on my laptop?
sMy laptop is an HP Pavilion dv7t-4100 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC running Windows 7 64 bit. No made no changes to my laptop.

Try the following:
1. Reset the wireless adapte by disabling and the enabling the adapter in Control Panel\Network and Sharing\Network Connections.
- Right click the adapter to disable and enable.
If this does not work:
2. Got to HP.com Support and Drivers. Enter your product number to go to your product page. Download the Wireless Networking driver and reinstall.
Did you apply any updates recently?

I appreciate the very quick response.
I reset the wireless adapter and reinstalled my driver as outlined. That didn't solve my problem. Note that I apply updates regularly.
After digging into every parameter of my router's (DIR-825) configuration, I determined that WMM had been disabled. I must have done this inadvertently while updating port forwarding for Magic Jack. After enabling this parameter, everything started to work properly again.
