Windows 7: help with new laptop

windows 7 Ultimate x64

Would it have anything to do with setting a security key to access the wireless router??? Surly your wireless is setup for WPA or something. You might check your Router setup to see if it's setup for DHCP server protocol and the range of addresses is more than two (I think by default it's set for a bunch). meees thinks...It could be as simple as turning the laptop off then on... to let the router assign an IP. I've seen this happend a few times.

Might try resetting your router... unplug it for a minute or so. I'd be digging into the router settings if this was my situation. For this We need to know the model # and name of router.

The other networks may not have been secure and easy to acquire.....
Luck to you m8... and plez let us know how it turned out
