Wireless issues with windows 7

Hello all , i think i have posted this question before, but i could not find the thread .
i have 2 laptops one XP one win 7, the XP laptop has not problem connecting and reconnecting to my network, the Windows 7 laptop will connect at times, and once it disconnected it will not re-connect, i have just spent the past 2 hours rechecking an resetting everything on the Windows 7 laptop, its using a intel wireless adapter 3545 ABG card, i downloaded the available drivers from dell (dell1520 laptop) in the control panel it says that the intel wireless card is not connected, but should that my network is available to connect to, i am at my wits end here, anyone have any ideas

thanks in advance

Have one. Are you running homegroup? homegroup is for win 7 machines only. If in a mixed environment like yours you should be running workgroup. easy to verify. set up a new network connection using the workgroup model and see if the connectivity improves. Is so disable IPv6 and kill homegroup

Try the Intel page for the latest Windows 7 drivers for your intel wireless adapter 3545 ABG card.

Click on the Windows 7 advisor and see if you can get the download.

So the password connection isn't working but with the network password turned off you can join the network?
Are you using the pre-assigned router password or did you create your own?

Reboot and try again, I remember I had try a few times before the password worked correctly. The router settings seemed to have something to do with it as I recall.

Pantz, are you sure your network is set up the way you want it to work? Check your setup next to this set-up tutorial: Networking home computers running different versions of Windows.
