Hello,
I have windows 7 operating system on my computer and have installed a new router that provides wireless network connectivity (I am able to logon to the internet), but I am unable to discover other computers in the local wireless network. What should I do?

depending on firewall and workgroup settings, and file sharing settings computers might not be visible on your network.

You question could be interpreted two ways:

a) you can't see neighbouring wireless networks.
b) you can't see who else is using your wireless connection.

If (a) I would download a program like Network Stumbler which is specifically designed for that purpose.

If (b) your router's user setup screens (see manual) should have a feature called something like Attached Devices.
