Wireless network issues

So I'm having this problem that's frustrating me beyond belief; I've installed my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 OS on my new tower, and I'm attempting to connect to my home wireless network so I can get on the internet, but it simply won't connect to the internet no matter what. My network is listed as "unidentified network" and my status is "No internet access". Attached is a picture of my network and sharing center.

What do you mean by "manually"? If I go to the network and sharing center and click on "set up a new connection", then click "wireless", it just brings up the list of networks that it has discovered, as per usual. No change in performance

EDIT: I figured out what you meant, via your screenshot. Still unable to connect to the internet. Is it because my network is set as "public"?

Oh so i misread ur first post, you were able to connect to your wireless network just can't go onto the interweb?

This could be an issue between your wireless router and ISP. Power down your pc, then power down your router (you may want to pull power cord too for surity). And bring them back online. See if the red x in your diagram is gone or not.

Come back with your response pls.

Well I can connect to the internet with every other device in the house, just not the win7 tower... I'll reboot the router anyway, I suppose.

That is strange, if your other machines have no issues why would your W7? i mean from the diagram it's about the web connections between your ISP and Router (pretty sure that's the case).

Btw, your desktop looks groovy.

It's a common issue with Win 7, aem. I still haven't resolved my problem of "Limited Connectivity". I'm connected to the wireless network, but I can't access the internet even though all other computers at home can.

I have actually solved the problem, as of about an hour ago. The fix is simple, if a bit of a hassle. All I had to do was connect my PC directly via ethernet to the router, and join the homegroup that way. Then I was able to connect to the network wirelessly. Hope this helps, Kiko!

I don't even get an IP Address from my router, so I can't access the network. It works flawlessly when I connect it through wire.

For the techs, I hope this helps:
