    Hey guys!

    So I've been having this problem on and off since I've had the computer, honestly, but I'm fed up. I've had this Windows 7 for awhile, and I can not get internet on there to save my life. I have a router from Comcast and a USB adapter that I set up to the computer, and it kinda recognizes it, but is never able to connect. I finally got it working a few months ago, even though I have no idea how, and that only lasted for a couple of weeks. I've been all online trying everything in the world, and nothing has helped! Someone please give me something!

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from the adapter manufacture's web site.

    If still can't connect give us some details--such as what exactly happens when you try to connect; the adapter brand and model; the wireless mode and type of encryption on your network.

    You could try removing your Router's Network from your current list of wireless networks. Click on your wifi icon on the desktop near the clock icon- Open Network and Sharing Center - on the left select Manage Wireless Networks. select network and click remove... then try to reconnect. Re-entering your network key etc... What security does your router use (WEP, WPA, WPA2) If you have another laptop try setting up an ad-hoc connection from your Win7 system?to see if your network card is at least working... go to Manage Wireless Networks again.. Click Add and then select create an ad hoc network... etc..
