I have a 2011 21.5 inch iMac that connects to my router perfectly while running OS X, but refuses to connect running Windows 7 SP1. It tells me to "reset the adapter", which I have to no avail. The computer connects to any other wireless network flawlessly, and the network to which I am connecting is functional (multiple other devices, including a laptop running Windows 7 work perfectly). The router is a ZyXEL PK5000Z set up with a WPA encrypted network.

Any advice?

Driver problem... Until Apple or atheros release new drivers, you're out of luck... Why do you want to run Windows on it anyways? –  billc.cn May 11 '12 at 22:23
It has, however, been able to connect to the same network in the past. –  Matthew May 12 '12 at 2:00
