My girlfriends computer has an issue connecting to the internet wireless at my house but every where else her computer can connect to their wireless internet. The laptop can connect through a direct connection at my house. I don't know what to really do or go to as i am not that familiar with windows 7. Any Suggestions???? Oh her laptop is a Dell inspirion with windows 7 home premium.

When you say "issue connecting to the wireless", what exactly is the issue?

Does the laptop detect the wireless connection at your place? If so, are you able to select your internet connection from the list and click on "Connect"?

In doing so, it should also ask for your WEP key (security code if any), so it can authorize the connection and allow internet access.

Is DHCP turned on in your router settings?
