Windows 7: For big brains only

Compatibility

I'm wondering if the laptop adapter is compatible with the router. The laptop connects to the Internet if there is no security but won't if there is security. Would buying a USB network adapter might solve the problem?

That shouldn't happen. Can you find out the model of the wireless card and update it's drivers?

What setting (wireless ) setting did you have on the laptop - My old laptop could only use wep or wpa , and that was all . So no security , my router was set on wpa2 and with the limitation on the wireless nic card on the laptop = no connect - I picked up a usb wireless lan and all was good .... Have you tried to go to the wireless manufacturing web page and see if there is a firmware update ?
