    First step (you may already have done this) would be to check if your router configuration has changed, including reboot of router and checking to see if another device (computer, phone, or tablet...) can connect via your router. If your wifi router is connected to a modem from your ISP, you should reboot the modem and check all of its settings. My ATT modem sometimes does squirrely things like this. If router is ok, then next step would be to remove any new software, uninstall and reinstall wifi drivers, checking to be sure that all configurations are back to baseline.
    Keep us posted. Good luck.

    Before you try a complete reinstall, you might try to see if it can connect with another wifi network. Sorry to hear it's being a pain.

    I'm glad it worked out for you. Your experience is, I suppose, a good argument for occasional Restore Points, and back-ups. :)
