Netgear WGR614v7 router under Windows 7

Dear Experts,

Today I got a new company computer which has operation system Windows 7, and basically my problem is that can not connect through wireless to a Netgear WGR614v7 router.

That is sure fact the router works anyway because Windows XP computers and also my mobile phone is able to connect without any issue. So my first association was that maybe this kind of router is not compatible with Windows 7?

Could you please advise which checks I should do, basically looking the Microsoft checking page the Netgear WGR614v7 seems compatible with Windows 7.

thanks,

There's no reason Windows 7 should not be able to connect. The wireless protocols are standards. Double check your wireless settings. Make sure you are choosing the right channel, authentication method, encryption, etc.

Oh, and correct passphase of course.

Sorry what does it mean "passphase"?

On my XP computer I have checked that WPA-PSK and TKP should be set, but somehow on Windows 7 there is no WPA-PSK exaclty, only some WPA-Personal and Enterprise. Can it be the problem that no WPA-PSK under Windows 7?

thanks,

WPA Personal is the same as WPA-PSK. The passphase is the password to connect to your SSID.

Thanks the advices, it was very important that you excluded that this is Windows 7 compatible issue with the router, so I did not want to buy a new one or uninstall the Windows 7.

It turned out that there is a company software which controls the wireless connections, and had to add this wifi point. So I am connected already from there :-)

thanks,
Zsolt
