I have a Windows 7 laptop here are work, I am trying to get on our wireless network. I have no problem doing this with a XP laptop.

This computer is not on our domain. Our WPA wireless authenticates the username/pass in order to connect the wireless.

Normally in XP if I wanted to do this, I would just change the wireless connection to not use the username/pass to connect automatically, and it would prompt for a username/password and the domain.

Once those were inputed the wireless would connect. However I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do this within windows 7.

Any Ideas?

Well I actually got this working, turns out I just needed to change from the "correct" settings to to the wrong one, then change it back and it worked flawlessly. I guess Windows 7 can be weird like that.

Yeah, sometimes connecting to wireless networks can be frustrating. Usually the best bet is to remove the network profile and start over. Sometimes you just have to dig around in the settings and look for something that's out of place. The settings aren't always applied correctly by default. It happens.

Glad you got it working, though. Happy computing. :)
