suddenly lost laptop internet connectivity

I spent wayyy too much time -I mean hours- trying to fix my laptop. All was fine then suddenly I have no internet connection. I am "connected" to my wireless network but "no internet connection". I am at a loss on this because:
1) my internet connection-modem (Comcast) is fine-Im able to access on my desktop
2) the wireless router is fine as the desktop can print to the wireless printer
The diagnostic on the HP laptop tells me there is a "problem with modem-contact your internet provider". Resets, unplugs, etc -on modem and router-do nothing.
As I can connect to the internet here on my desktop- no issue w the modem or I couldn't get online at all.
Sooo...as a last resort, I tried restoring the system to a date earlier in the week, that too will not net me a connection as the restore does not take.
This makes me realize just how connected I am on my laptop. I am ready to screeeeeeam!
