"Wireless networks are available" but no connectivity

I got a new laptop with Vista a few weeks ago and so far everything has
worked perfectly. Today, though, I haven't been able to connect to the
internet, it says "wireless networks are available" but the list of
networks to connect to is blank. It is sitting right next to my router
and I know the router is working (which is how I'm able to be online
here with my other computer).

I know my modem and router are working, it's got to be the laptop. I've
had the laptop for a few weeks and everything worked great until today,
no idea what the change was, any ideas? I can't get online with it to
download any new drivers/updates, I feel very stuck.
