Do not use open, it's a huge security risk and Windows 7 has no problems with WPA2 and AES. Don't forget to create the SSID "name of the network" then define that also when you use the manual wireless set up in Win 7.
You can check the wireless connection credentials by going to the network and sharing center, look upper left and choose wireless connection manager.
You might want to post your router's make brand and version number here so I can make sure it's compatible. Listing your system specs will also be helpful to make sure you have the correct wireless adaptor driver installed.
