Windows 7 won’t connect to wireless network

I’ve been finding lately that some computers with Windows 7 do not connect easily to a wireless network that has a security key.  Often times this is related to the type of encryption on the router, or using WPA / WPA2 vs WEP.  If you are unable to get your Windows 7 computer to connect (and you’re sure you are using the correct wireless password), log in to your router and try setting up your wireless encryption to use a different method.  For example, if you currently are using WPA, change it to WEP and set a new password.  Restart your computer and then try to log on.  You should be much more successful.
