For some reason, I am all of a sudden unable to connect to a wireless connection via a laptop.  I am sitting 2 feet from a Linksys routher and connect if I plug into to the router, but an unable to connect wirelessly.  I am fairly certain that the problem lies within the Intel wireless control software because I am unable to connect to other routers that were working earlier today.

I have checked the history log of the Intel troubleshoot viewer and it appears that the profiles are timing out.  I also notice this message in the log...

Intel(R) Wireless Troubleshooter does not find any usable alert event traces.

Any suggestions?

I assume you've powered down the laptop and restarted, and probably wouldn't hurt to power down the wireless router and do the same (make sure to wait 20-30 seconds after unplugging the router before plugging back in)

I've had similar problems with my Intel card.  Try opening Network Connections, right clicking the adapter, and selecting "Repair".
