Hi there

Without knowing the hardware this reply doesn't actually say anything.

It's like saying I can't install W7 on my computer.

Different hardware will produce different results. If you don't believe that try putting Diesel into a Petrol Engine and then say "My car doesn't work".

Cheers

View my profile then.

And for the my router, I didn't have to change a thing. Windows 7 asked me for my network key and it connected fine after that.

Hi there.

most people when answering replies don't always want the bother of looking for someone's profile which may or may not be accurate - on this board a lot of people are always experimenting with different hardware whatever is in their profile - and often have several different computers so its always a good practice to try and be reasonably specific in stating the nature of the problem and on what particular hardware the defect appears.

The more decent information you can give the easier it is for people to give you a solution if they have it -- one of the great things about these sort of boards is that loads of users have encountered similar problems and are willing to save others time by outlining their solutions.

If the hardware is unknown then its impossible to give a helpful answer.

(Another point about the profile -- you could be working on an Office computer or a computer at a friend's house which iwould probably be totally different from the profile so I would suggest its ALWAYS helpful to state the hardware your fault occurs on).

cheers
jimbo

I know what you mean but if I was on another computer then I'd mention it's spec.

Yes i can connect to the router page as well, just nothing beyond the router.
You may better try these configurations (marked by red box) inside the connected router and see if it works...
