At the risk of sounding contradictory to the previous post, which is not my intention, I would caution you to look for simple things before getting in too deep reconfiguring everything. From what you have said there is no reason for any of the settings on your router to have changed. Given that, the first thought is your automatic update settings. What did Microsoft install last night? And an even better first question is whether or not you have other systems that can connect OK. If you do, than it's obviously an issue with your laptop.

I know I've dealt with this issue before, the details are a little hazy yet (it's too early on Monday morning ;-) ).
