Connecting to network on Windows 7

Hey guys merry christmas! I'm new to this forum so sorry if this is already covered. I currently have two computers in my house. One has windows xp and the other has windows 7. When I try to connect to the internet wirelessly the windows xp computer ALWAYS works. On the other hand the windows 7 computer is only able to get internet access around 10% of the time. The windows 7 computer is able to connect but there is never any internet access. I get this picture with bars and an exclamation point on it. I've tried resetting the router but this is only a temporary solution that lasts maybe a few hours. I really need help with this.

check for a firmware update for your router, and a driver update for the wireless card in your windows 7 computer.
