Cannot connect to any NEW WiFi Networks - only existing...
Running Win7 Ultimate 32bit here
Am unable to connect to any NEW Wifi Networks that are detected.
The WiFi Adapter sees them just fine - just cannot connect to them.
However am able to connect to existing networks
(SSIDs that already appear in "Manage Wireless Networks").
Furthermore, If I boot into my Win7 Enterprise for work, everything works good.
I have a saved WiFi connection for my Verizon Hotspot device, that I can always connect to.
But if am at hotel (no encryption), and want to connect to their wireless, It fails to connect...
Is there some sort of Windows Service that might be failing?
I am trying to avoid having to do a Windows Restore, because I fear that it might intefere with
recently installed programs...

I think the real problem here is you are trying to connect to unsecured networks.
Windows 7 won't allow this unless you change the network type to Public, as this will secure the files and folders on your machine.
Follow the link which shows you how to change to a Public network and also tells you why the Public network option is there.
Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network
