Windows 7 wifi identifying

Hi, and help please! I am having problems connecting to wifi when abroad I have been using Vista on my laptop and last year there was not a problem but this year I was in France for 7 weeks and nearly evertime I tried to connect (using the appropriate password and getting full strenth wifi it would not connect, it kept stating that it was identifying and would not connect, so I would try fiddling about with various settings and sometimes it would connect. There was times when I could not get on and the people all around were connected.

So fed up with this happening all the time I bought a new notebook and was in Spain last week and I still could not get connected with all the same things happening as with my old laptop.

I have included the details of the new notebook, I am not very computer educated so if you could please go easy on me with computer jargon (sorry)

Welcome to Seven forums graemejack4.
You should update with Win 7 SP1 first of all. Go to Control Panel/Device Manager, go to Network Adapters. Right click on each one you have and select Update Driver.
I'm not familiar with European WiFi, does it use a different protocol there?

Hello,

You may refresh your connections by removing the wireless networks stored. Add the new connection, if it's secured make sure that you have the right encyrption key.
