I recently bought a new PC, and I've had it working super great in my living room. Today I decided to move it into my bedroom, and when I got it moved and powered up, the internet doesn't want to connect anymore. The computer detects the network, but it won't connect. Actually, it isn't even giving me an option to connect to the network...but I see it there, lingering and taunting away. I have three other computers in my home--all three without any problems (they're laptops) and connected to the same wireless network. I'm at a loss, and I am absolutely not a networking genius. All I did was move the computer across the hall! Any ideas would be appreciated!

ps--not sure what specifics are needed--I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell on the computer in question--I'm super happy to oblige any further needed information. Thanks again!

I take it your trying to connect to a wireless connection is this correct?

Sorry to ask this question, but your description didn't really clarify that part.
