Windows 7: Cant connect wirelessly

I'm wondering if you have the Bonjour service installed. It'll install as a part of Adobe CS3 or CS 4 and also iTunes I think. This will create another network called unknown network and can cause havoc with your Internet connection. If you do, stop the service and uninstall Bonjour.

Windows 7 Ultimate won't connect to my wireless network

My Dell Studio 1737 laptop has a Dell Wireless-N 1510 mini card.

I think it is a problem with Windows 7 Ultimate RC. I've upgraded my Asus Netbook to Windows 7 Pro Upgrade final release and it is working like a charm.

I've rebooted both my cable modem and router, in that order.

Also sorry for the bump, but has anyone found a resolution yet? If i cant find a solution to this i will have to revert back to vista and i really dont want to do this because im liking windows 7
I have a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card, if that helps? I dunno if it's Intel.

This has nothing to do with my problem. I already had the problem before i install itunes and bonjour.

This is such a stupid question, but would Dell ship with Release Candidate versions of Windows 7?

And if so, how would I check if mine was?

If you bought this laptop new and it shipped with Windows 7, then it must be the RTM version (Final) and not RC.

About the Bonjour or iTunes, i have non installed. This is a fresh install of windows 7, and i have installed nothing but the drivers.

Also i found this - when i upgraded the intel wireless adapter drivers, a new "wireless adapter" is showing up in my connections. It says Microsoft Virtual Wireless adapter - or something to that extent. You cant connect to anything through that because it doesnt give you the option to. Also i have disabled that "adapter" but still no luck with my real wireless adapter.

Also, i'm using the final version of Windows 7.


The problem remains as is.

I haven't seen this "Microsoft Virtual Wirless adaptor" anywhere, just to check that we have a even more similar problem, where did it say this?

The laptop came with Vista. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate RC aftwards That is why I think it is an issue with the RC version. I installed Windows 7 Pro on my Asus Netbook and I am connecting with no problems.
