Windows 7 - Unidentified Network - SOLVED!

Between the two techies at work and poor herefox, I now have a wireless internet connection with my new computer!!!

After trying a bunch of stuff, Dave mentioned that Windows 7 does not support WEP encryption...

So, Foxy ended up resetting my router (password? What password? The only thing I remember about that day is taking pezazul to Emergency...) and changed the encryption to WPA-2. Everything works. XP, Windows 7. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, if you get a Windows 7 machine and it sees the router, but does not connect through to the internet - check your encryption!
