Windows 7: Unable To Connect My Laptop To My Network

Unable To Connect My Laptop To My Network

Hi everyone,

I bought a new laptop and I am unable to connect to my wireless network.

Here's some information that might be useful to find out what the problem is:

My computer: Windows XP version 2002
My brand new laptop: Windows 7 Premium Familial Edition
My router: Linksys Broadband router with 4 -port switch, model WRT54G

I have no clue what I am doing wrong, I changed the workgroup of my laptop to the same one as my computer and it's not working.

Thanks for the help.

I am in the same boat. I can connect to my WRT54G via Ethernet cable but not wireless. Linksys says that a new program will be out very soon called Network Magic to connect to the WRT54G, and other models I presume, to computers with Windows 7.
