For no apparent reason Wi-Fi Network is "not connected". Selected

Resolved Question:

For no apparent reason Wi-Fi Network is "not connected".
Selected "Wi-Fi Networks" on menu which shows 10 available.
"view" is underlined but I have no idea what I should do next.
Pressing centre button highlights it all but nothing else appears as an option to connect.
Advice required urgently as I am away tomorrow for some days and cannot download a book I have just purchased.

Randy,

Switching off for 20 secs and on again was enough. Full connection signal now showing at top RH corner of screen.

Many thanks.
