    Having trouble with the TP-Link WN722N that I bought from Newegg. It doesn't show any networks on my desktop that runs on Win7. Took the drivers straight from the CD. It works fine on my other laptops and desktop. Any idea what is causing this?

    Did you confirm that the device is showing working properly in Change Adapter Settings as well as Device Manager?

    It is indeed listed in both places correctly. Here is a picture of my ipconfig /all if you need it

    Did the TP-Link install it's own wireless connection program?

    Yes.

    Edit: Disabled Wireless Zero Configuration, didn't do anything. Forgot if I mentioned this but both my other computers (laptop and desktop) work perfectly fine with it. They run on Vista and Windows 7 respectively (they also both have Wireless Zero Config enabled).
    Edit 2: Tried switching channels to 6 and 11, doesn't seem to affect anything.
