Hi all,

I have a cisco wireless router, and I have 3 laptops which all have wireless internet. Recently, I had to reinstall the operationg system (Windows 7) on one of them, and since then that laptop has not been able to connect wirelessly, but the other two can. How do I fix this? I already did the turn router and computers off, wait ten sec and then restart everything. The other two computers connect but this one does not.

Sounds like a wifi key issue(assuming the wifi driver is installed and working correctly), what type of wifi key are you using:
  • WEP(open)
  • WEP(shared)
  • WPA
  • WPA2

I am using WPA2 security. It was actually the driver that wasnt working properly. I downloaded the driver on a different laptop, and moved it to this laptop via a flash drive, installed it and all was well. The weird thing is, that whenever I had installed windows 7 on this laptop before, the default driver loaded when windows 7 installed, was able to connect properly, but for some reason this time it didnt. Strange!!

Glad, you have figured it out. Must of been a bad copy of the driver during installation.
