Windows 7: How to Reset or Delete Network?

How to Reset or Delete Network?

My computer won't connect to the internet right now. My router shows that the internet is connected, but my computer says there is a network connection problem.

I want windows to start over and create a new network. This is my problem.

If I right click on the network icon in the taskbar and open "Network & Sharing Center" it opens and I click on "Connect to a network" it opens a window in the taskbar giving me an option to open the network & sharing center?! Which just starts the cycle over again.

I wan't to be able to see the network that windows has set up and delete it or create a new one but can't seem to figure it out. Win7 is too user friendly now that I can't find any of the advanced controls? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
