Default suddenly cannot connect to the internet

This happened last night after I uninstalled a few programmes I never use. My router and ISP is fine because the rest of my family can connect to the internet so it's obviously something to do with my laptop. It can't detect any other networks as well as my own router so it looks as if my laptop's been set to a wired network as opposed to a wireless network. Anyone know any solutions for this?

Before you try to "fix" anything, first thing to do is to restart your computer. It could just be a glitch. If that doesn't fix it, then check the following:

Some laptops have an external switch to switch off the wireless LAN, check you haven't accidentally switched it off. It's often located on the front edge of the keyboard - see this example: http://ccit.college.columbia.edu/sites/ccit/files/Hardware_Switch.png

If you can't find one there, some laptops have the switch on the function keys: http://www.support.europa-network.com/_img/laptop-wireless/fnc-keys.jpg

How can a proper answer can be given is no OS specified.

First you go to to your control panel/system/devices and make sure wireless adapter is enabled and works properly i.e. there are no question marks or "other devices" (unrecognized ones). this will ensure your hardware works.

then you look at software side and make sure all is cool there
