Windows 7: Why can't I connect to my network?

Why can't I connect to my network?

"Windows was unable to connect to this network."

I can connect to neighbor's networks, but not my own. It just doesn't make sense.

I've tried all the troubleshooting methods I know, but NOTHING has worked! I'm starting to become more than irritated.

I'm running Win7 Ultimate x64. My adapter is a Zonet ZE2500P USB adapter. My router is some 2Wire with wireless G.

Have you tried removing any security password or MAC address filtering from your router to see if you can connect?

I got it sorted. My AV was preventing it for some reason. >.> I turned it off, connected, and then turned it back on. All is well now.
