Can't locate my router on Win7

Hey, today I dualbooted Windows Vista Home Premium and Win7 Ultimate, but Win7 can't locate my router.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks

Check in services and see if SSDP Discovery is running... It's responsible for locating hardware on your network (routers, printers, etc.)

1)Have you got the correct drivers installed?

2)You might need to reset your router. There would be a pinhead-sized button in the back. Then, delete the faulty connection in Win7 and create a new one.
