Wireless Issues

Hi Everyone,

Is there an issue with Windows 7 and Wireless???

I have two brand new laptops, when using there Wireless to connect to a Wireless Router, i get 'Windows cannot connect blah blah blah'

If I use my Wireless USB Key no problem whatsoever.

I have uninstalled, downloaded latest driver etc etc but nothing. I am an IT Analyst so 'should' no what I'm doing. One laptop is an ACER the other a DELL.

Am I missing something????

Any ideas would be appreciated

Gareth

Usually no problem with win 7 and wifi. We could be more useful if we knew your system specs.

Are you running "homegroup" for networking, or "workgroup"?
