    Check.
    You have no conflicting wireless managers installed try using only the Windows built in tool
    Remove any unneeded wireless networks from your system.
    Remove and re add your network back in, ensure all settings are configured correctly. Connect firstly with the cable and note down everything exactly. i.e. SSID, Security type, encryption type, security key.
    If it still dosent work look into updating or rolling back the drivers for your wireless card.
