Windows 7: Apparently New Wireless Problem

Apparently New Wireless Problem

I can't connect to a working (I'm using this connection on an iPod touch right now) wireless connection. It shows as me being connected, but disconnects and attempts to repair itself whenever I try to use the Internet. My router is a NetGear Wireless-N 150 Router WNR1000, and my OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. The security type is a WPA2-PSK. I'm new to the technical terms so let me know if I missed anything. Thanks.

Hi Axoc,

Make sure that you have the latest driver for your wireless network adapter.

Please remove all wireless network profiles stored from your computer, then re-connect to your home wireless network, make sure that you have the correct Security key. Here's How.

Let's also try renewing the IP Address.

If you're dualbooting to Linux, make sure it is still enabled in Linux before rebooting to Windows. This has been 9/10 cause of my wireless not working in Win7.
