Default Can't connect to wireless on samsung notebook, but can connect on iphone?

I have a Samsung notebook that i have been able to connect to my wireless router for months. I can't connect to my internet at all but can connect on iphone and playstation 3. I also have the error code 10044 on avast... i have tried to use command prompt 'ipconfig/release' and 'ipconfig/renew' but it says no operation can be performed on wireless connection or local area connection while it has its media disconnected?

can anyone help at all???
