I'm certain that the unidentified network is due to missing details that w7 require to know for it to sucessfully identify it. If it not missing, it could be simeple not identifiable. Eg. DNS, default gateway, DHCP etc. If you have full bars than it must but this.

Can you get us the detail of your ipconfig /all ?

Your adapter is not receiving a valid IP adress from what ever is hosting DHCP service on your network. Most likely your wireless router. The Device named BTHomeHub may needed to be restarted and then you should be able to perform an ipconfig /release and then an ipconfig /renew from a command prompt running as an administrator.

Find your shortcut for a command prompt.....start...all programs....accessories....right click and choose run as administrator. In the command prompt window just type ipconfig /release hit enter and then type ipconfig /renew and hit enter again. Let me know if you get a legitimate IP address, or an error like "unable to contact DHCP server"
