Windows 7: Solved: No connections available after renaming network

Solved: No connections available after renaming network

I renamed the wireless network (ESSID) of my router from one of my Windows XP PC's, and then found that my Windows 7 PC could no longer see any networks at all (there are several from neighbours in addition to mine).

Nothing seemed to help - Rebooting, uninstalling drivers for the wireless card, etc. Eventually I got it to work by giving the network card a fixed IP address, and the it could see all the networks again. I could then change it back to DHCP and it was still okay.

Static ip address is always smart way to go.

PC boots slightly faster too, although that's very minimal difference.
