Windows 7 Wifi connection problem

Postby guest » Sun Jun 24, 2012 9:27 pm

I need help with my wifi for my laptop, windows 7, this morning for my school sent me my new computer, which is great but I can't get it to connect to wifi, I don't have any other internet right now. That will be in about 4 days but I desperately need to use the windows 7 computer now, So I need it to be wifi capable. I know close to nothing about computers but I did do this.

~Go into my Network and sharing center and try to diagnose and try to repair it.
~I've repaired, restarted, turn on and off, and everytime it says windows could not connect to preferred network.
~All my other computers are connecting fine.
~My wireless button is turned on and blue.

Can anyone help? It would be great if you could.

Wireless setup in Windows 7 is simple. Please go to Control Panel --- Network and Internet, click on Connect to a network. This will start the network connection list in Notification area. Let me know if your home wireless network is listed.



If not, check if wireless network card is enabled. There should be a switch on the computer which controls the wireless network card on or off.



Meanwhile, please help me confirm following questions:



1. Is there any other computer connected with wireless connection?

2. Is it a public wireless network, or a wireless router? If it is a router and there is no other computer can help detect wireless connection, we should access router settings to see if wireless function if enabled.
