SO CLOSE, yet so far :(

Hey guys! I got a question, hope you can help me out.

Basically I just installed Win7 in my computer, and am trying to install the old network adapter that I had when I used Win XP. So I inserted the card, Windows detected it, said it was installing some drivers, and BAM there is the little icon with the bars and the yellow star on the bottom right corner of my screen.

So I open the small window with the networks in range and there is my network! But something is odd... next to the name of each network is a little red X :heink: . And when I click it, the following message appears, "The capabilities of your network adapter does not match the requirements of this network."

Any ideas??!!

I tried to find a solution with the program that got installed once Windows detected the network adapter, but I couldn't solve the issue. The network adapter is: TrendNet TEW-423PI (Version B1).

My network is detected by the adapter, the utility even shows the signal strength. I just can't manage to connect.

What do you guys suggest I do next?

  1. Don't rely on Win7 inbuilt drivers -- go to website of adapter or chipset maker and look for their newest driver for Win7
