Windows 7: can't connect to router

Windows 7
can't connect to router

I apologize if this is posted elsewhere. I'm not much of an IT guru, so sometimes when I read a post I really don't know what I'm reading , and therefore, didn't realize the solution applied to my problem. I'm also painfully new to Windows 7, and really like it so far minus this internet connectivity nightmare lol!

My system specs are posted on my profile. My wireless network adapter is an Intellinet Network Solutions Wireless G USB Network Adapter with detachable antenna. The wireless card is seeing all of the available networks, including mine. The problem is that when it asks for my network key it says network key mismatch. I know i'm getting this password right because I've used it on all of the other computers in the house (including the one I just installed 7 on).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This happened recently to another forum member. He solved his issue by updating the drivers for his wifi card.

There's a lot of info in that thread. Some of it may not apply to you, but I suggest reading the entire thread to see if any of it may help. Did you download Windows 7 drivers for your hardware from the manufacturer?
