I tried running group policy update on them, but there's still no luck. The driver is working becuase we can see wireless networks from homes neighboring the school, and our access point is working because the XP machine right next to them picks up the signal just fine.
Christian; Welcome to Windows 7 Forums!! We are here to help, if we can.
Looking at your post, I would like to get the simple questions answered first. It seems it is the laptop that has the problem. You say you tried to "manually connect"? you would need to create the "new wireless connection? Then use "Manage wireless networks" to edit settings?
You also said there are other wireless networks detected? Does the laptop detect these networks but not the school's network?
Workgroup settings, not HomeGroup? What does the troubleshooter tell you? What IP address is DHCP assigning?
Sorry if you have already checked all this out. Post back with more details and lets see what we can find?
