Hey I am new to this forum and only really signed up to see if someone can figure this out.
My router is upstairs and when the computer (not a laptop) is beside it the wireless recognizes my network and works just fine.
When I take the computer downstairs to hook it up to my big TV as a monitor I have the wireless doesn't recognize the network and calls it public and won't connect properly.
the signal strength is fine. my PS3 works normally at about 90% and the compter sees the network just fine so I know it isn't the signal it is something else. If you want to see any additional info let me know and I will post it.

This whole windows 7 is new to me and I have had some puzzles already with this on my network. Like having to input a MAC address for a wired connection with MAC Filtering
