Windows 7: can't connect to wireless

Windows 7 x64 build 7068
 
 
can't connect to wireless

router: linksys WRT54G
adapter: intel 3945ABG

Can't connect wirelessly to my router. My drivers are the latest ones. My computer sees the router and verifies the SSID but won't connect to it. Troubleshooter does not offer any solutions.

Any comments?

Whats your wirless router's security set too??

Does your wireless adapter support that security e.g. (wep, wpa, wpa2 etc.)

My wireless adapter does support all those. When my laptop was running Vista x86, Vista x64, & Windows 7 x86 (build 7000), I was able to connect. For some reason now that I'm running W7 x64 (build 7068) I can't connect.

This is a laptop right? Did you just install the drivers or drivers and the connection utility??

Many of the Beta versions had problems.... simple to fix.
delete the auto make link - delete it.
move down to make a new connection and manually set it up.
simple and it works
now I'm not sure if you use x64. since OS x64 has problems on everything.

If your router uses WEP, change it to WPA. If you are not using Homegroup, disable ip6.
