I right clicked on my network by clicking on the "bar graph" icon on the bottom of the screen, and then clicked on "status", which opens Wireless Connection Status. Unfortunately, I clikced on "disable". Now, when I right click on the network, I don't get the "status" option, so I can't enable the network.

Go and press the START button > NETWORK CONNECTIONS > NETWORK AND INTERNET CONNECTIONS and your wireless adapter should be there... just enable it
Or you can go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Network and Internet connections

Thank you for your response.
I don't think that I explained my situation well enough.
I have a wired PC, and a laptop connected to the Internet through a wireless router. The name of my connection, or network is "wizard". When I right clicked on "wizard", the dialog box gave an option for "status". I clicked on that, then I clicked "disable".
I cannot find a way to enable it. I can get to the Internet through a "default" connection, but it is slower.
I followed your instructions, but I don't see the wireless adapter that you are referring to.

On your computer click on Start - Control Panel - Network and Internet Connection - Then click on Network and Sharing Center - then under Task click on "Manage Wireless Networks" and then remove all the Preferred Networks from the List and then try to connect to your wireless network again.
