as a last resort you could try a system restore to the last time you had the net working correctly

Check to make sure your router is compatible with Windows 7: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/com...s/default.aspx. If it is, update your drivers: Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly.

I didn't see my router in there. I have a 2Wire 2700HG-B in case anyone knows if it's compatible or not.

But didn't you say that it worked for a few days - so the router must have worked. Or did you not use that router then?

I didn't really think about that. I was at another persons house using there wireless router. I guess i'll go try that one again and if it works then i'll know it's my router.

Good idea. But it may also be the router setup. So don't immediately give up on the router. Run the wizard again (with the router tethered).

Whenever i run troubleshooting the computer allways tells me that my wireless capability is turned off. Does this mean that I have some firewall blocking it or does it mean that my network adapter is dead?

That is not good news. Can you borrow a WiFi dongle from someone?

What is a wifi dongle? I don't think I know anyone who has one of those anyways but if you explain it I might be able to get one.
