Windows 7: wireless adapter won't connect to new router

I was just on my wife's computer and she can't connect either and I checked my old computer that could connect and it can't now. So I am going to reset my router and try setting it back up again to see if that works. Also the router defaults to Wpa2 aes security, is that not compatible with some computers?

WPA2 and AES should work with most newer machines, if these machines can only work with wireless G or below then you need to be sure and use the mixed mode 802.11 settings, if all these machines are wireless N capable then it may work best using the 802.11n Only setting.
