Windows 7: Cannot Delete Network Profile

Cannot Delete Network Profile

I have a Lenovo T61 that I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate from Vista Ultimate. Wireless networking works fine except for one profile that was used in Vista. When I try to connect to that particular site, the network attempts connect but always fail. The network trys to connect to a profile that was previously used in this situation, however the properties indicate Windows Vista. I believe if I could delete the profile, a new one would be created and connection could be made.

The problem is: I cannot delete the profile. I cannot locate it on the system. The only time it appears is when trying to connect to this particular site. A text file is generated when I use the troubleshooter. Please see below. Any help provided would be appreciated.

Connection status: Disconnected
Cause: Failed for an unknown reason.
Error code: 65537
Recommended actions:
Verify that the encryption settings (WEP/TKIP/AES) specified in this profile match those expected by the wireless network.
Verify that the wireless adapter in your computer has not been restricted from accessing the radio channels being used by the wireless network.

If the problem persists, contact your network administrator and provide the troubleshooting information below.
