I just got an internet connection at home with a wireless router. For some reason, I cannot connect to this network on Windows 7. My phone (samsung corby pro) can connect to it and I can surf. I can even connect to the network in Ubuntu and everything works. My roommate has no issues connecting to the network.
My guess is that the wireless drivers on windows 7 are not up to date. Windows update doesn't offer any newer drivers, and the manufacturer's website doesn't list any drivers for windows 7 at all.
My laptop is a HP dv6750ee, which has a Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g Wifi Adapter (got that from device manager).
I connect and use other wireless networks on a daily basis from windows 7, and nothing seems to be wrong.
I think there is some problem with the network authentication used and supported by my current driver in windows 7. Can anyone point out the solution?
