I did not do any Windows Updates recently. However, somehow, I seem to have
resolved the problem. I first went to connectivity doctor to see if it could
diagnose the problem. Then I went to the settings for the wireless connection
and changed the security type from "no authentication (open)" to WPA personal
and the encryption type from WEP to AES then entered in my network security
key. Windows checked to see if that fixed it and it had not. So I went back
to the settings and reverted them back to their original state. Windows
surprisingly came back and said that fixed the problem and I was able to get
right online. Any clue what happened?
