Windows 7 wireless connection help!

My wireless connection will simply not work for windows 7. My mom is connecting fine with service packet 3 and, hardwired to the internet with an ethernet cable, the internet works fine. First when I got my laptop it read my linksys wireless connection just fine, but after a few days it was no longer able to read the connection and it showed my wireless status as "no connection available" with an 'X' over it. I purchased a new router (netgear) and after a couple hours I received the same problem and I have no idea how to fix this! please help me!!!

Hi and welcome

I suspect you are using homegroup and IPv6 for networking. With some systems it can be difficult. can you tell me about both your comptuers cad (wifi0 and network setup

yes i am using IPv6 for networking but i am not using homegroup for these computers. Sorry im not very technically sound, what specifically do you want to know...my router is a netgear wnd3300. using wpa2 security option (aes). can you tell me specifically what you need to know? sorry for me being a n00b, your help is very appreciated

*edit - apparently i was connected to a homegroup but left it, no need for it
