It is possible that it is your router. We can't rule that out just yet. Unplug the power cable from the modem and the router, leave them out for about 30 seconds, then plug in the modem, give it about 10 seconds, then plug in the router. After both have reloaded completely turn on the laptop and see if it connects.

If not, delete the wireless profile for the network and re-connect to your router to see if that helps.
