I have just purchased a new lap-top with windows 7 and I can't connect to my network (cable gateway) It shows a wireless connection excellent strength.but doesn't connect.I can connect to a unsecured neighbor.

Can you connect to your own wireless if you disable wireless security in the Netgear unit ?

If so, you need to make sure that you select a protocol (preferably WPA) which both devices support. If you must use WEP, try noting the HEX translation of the passphrase used and apply that to the laptop wireless user interface.

I had this problem as well. The only fix was to change to WPA2-PSK (personal) on the Netgear router and do the same on the wireless card/adapter. I tried working with my ISP technical support and Dell technical support for over 17 hours and NOTHING they suggested worked.

I hope this works for you!

You are a genius. Had the same problem with a Dell and ended up sending it back. Same problem existed on an HP and concluded it was an OS issue. This worked for me.
