Set-up issue

Hi

I am a complete noob with all this, so please be patient.

I just received my new laptop - Dell XPS 17

I have a Netgear wndr3700 router and my wife's laptop is connected wirelessly.

I've been trying to connect my new laptop to my wireless router since yesterday, without success. I am running Win 7 ultimate 64bit.

When connected wired to my router it recognizes my SSID but will not connect. Windows troubleshooter, states something about restarting the router/access point and trying it again which I did several times.

The security type is WPA2-PSK

I am assuming it is a router setting, I thought initially it was my wifi card, but I manged to connect to an unsecured network.

I am not sure what other info you require but your help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Try updating the driver for Wifi card in the Dell XPS 17.

If unable to connect wired as well, try updating the driver for the LAN card too.
