Windows vista cannot connect wireless

After a Vista update, my PC is unable to connect to my Belkin router. All other devices can connect wirelessly. It sees my router and the signal is excellent. I've tried flushing the registry to no avail. All drivers are updated. I cannot find a solution, please advise.

    Add /remove programs - check the show updates box. Look at the updates for the date which applies. you may find you want to uninstall something that the Windows update applied. Or maybe rollback a driver for something.

    I forgot to add that I did roll back to before the update and I even re-installed Vista to no avail. I've researched almost every other answer online and nothing seems to work. Thanks

    Including flushing the DNS ?

    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /renew

  6. Thanks. I did connect to the Internet by connected the wire directly to my router, it just does not connect wirelessly. Thanks for trying.
