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

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
