Wireless not connected - no connections are available

Hope to get a bit of advice on why my wifi isnt working, Ive exhausted my knowledge, and hope there may be someone on here who can give some good advice on how to fix....


Yesterday, out of the blue, I started my laptop up HP G56 and it cam back with the internet being not connected, with no connections available.  The laptop has a Realtek RTL8191SE wifi card fitted.


Other devices in the house are connected ok to the router wirelessly, and I have internet connectivity with an ethernet cable direct to the router.


I have so far tried.... (with windows firewall enabled and disabled)


Disabling / re-enabling the adapter.

Uninstalling / re-installing the driver.

Used system recovery to go back 2 weeks to when it was working fine.


In device manager, it says the adapter is working correctly, and if I try to set up the wireless connection in the network and sharing center it shows the wireless as having 5 green bars, but when you click it, it gives the small network "Not connected" box in the lower right of the desktop, this also has the wireless icon, showing grey signal bars with a red "X" next to it.

Also in the network and sharing center, when you click "view full map" it says the adapter is not connected.


Really struggling, so any advice appreciated...
