Windows 7: Windows 7 reinstall-lost wireless effectiveness.

Windows 7 reinstall-lost wireless effectiveness.

Hello, I recently reinstalled windows from Home Premium 32-bit to Ultimate 64-bit.
All was okay, except the fact that I could not connect to my home wifi. It asked me for a password, I typed it in, then it asked me for it again, but this time it inmediatly said that it was invalid. Other responses ive had are Network security mismatch, windows cannot connect to the network...
Ive tried many different things, such as installiing the 32-bit version of Ultimate, updating drivers, and i cant connect to the wirelles.
My wifi card is a Conceptronic C300i,
I would really appreciate it if someone could help me!

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I'm going to suggest a rather generic set of troubleshooting steps:

open Network and Sharing Center
click on Manage Wireless Networks
right click on each network name listed and select Remove network from the context menu
restart the computer and try to connect to your Wireless Access Point again

If that does not fix things - there are a few other things that we can try - like uninstalling the network adapter and re-instaling it.......
