Windows 7: Windows 7 connects to everything but my home router

11 Jul 2009   #1

Windows xp Media Center SP3
Windows 7 connects to everything but my home router

I have a Compaq Presario V6105NR laptop and a Netgear WGT624 V3 router.
I have a dual install-Media CenterXP and Widows 7.In XP I can connect to my Netgear router and any unsecured network in range.In Windows 7 I can only connect to unsecured routers ,not my own Netgear router.Netgear says my firmware is up to date.My security is WPA-PSK{TKIP}
I have tried disabling my windows firewall and only just installed Avast antivirus but the problem was there before Avast and is still there.I have found others on this forum with the same weird problem but no solution.Can anyone help?
