My problem is my laptop is not connecting to the only network in my home and I can connect to all other wireless networks around.
Also there is no problem with the router/modem coz all my room mates can connect and access internet wireless and also through Ethernet.
Even I'm able to connect to the home network using Ethernet but not wireless. Strange but true! Please help, the following are the details:

Hi quadri,

Try deleting all wireless networks stored in your computer. Re-add your own SSID, make sure to type the correct network key.
Easy Way to Delete Wireless Network Profile in Windows 7

Test your connection after, if it didn't work update your Wi Fi adapter's driver to the latest. Download it from the manufacturer's site.

An update will be appreciated.
