I bought a new laptop (Lenovo) with Windows 7. Still have an older Windows XP laptop. I have a wireless router (Trendnet). My XP machine is picking up the wireless just fine, but the Windows 7 keeps showing no internet access, even though it clearly sees the network and is connected to it. I think there was an issue at first that Windows 7 does not recommend WEP. However, it also noted that if I wanted to do WEP anyway to do so manually. I tried it, but it still doesn't work. It's obviously not my router or internet connection. Is there a way I can get the Windows 7 machine to work with the wireless as it is set up? I tried to do a bunch of changes to the router and all it did was screw up ALL internet access I had. The windows 7 machine was picking it up just fine yesteday, then today it stopped. It will have access sporadically for about 10 seconds and then drop.
Any help on how to solve this Windows 7 wireless issue would be appreciated -- and hopefully it will just be changes on the machine rather than the router, since my XP comp is working just fine with it.
