Cannot connect to any wireless networks after Windows 7 upgrade from Vista
I have a Dell E6500 laptop.
When I had Vista on it I was able to connect to wireless networks at work and home.
Since upgrading to Windows 7 32-bit the laptop sees all the wireless networks at work and home but will not connect.
There are several thousand
people at my work who are able to connect to the wireless network so the problem is not with access points or router settings.
