    I have a Compaq c700 with Windows vista 32 bit.

    Older computer, but it works.

    I have been traveling a lot and I am having some trouble now with my internet. It appears that any time I am in a network that has a computer running Windows 7, I am unable to connect to the internet via wireless.

    Here is my situation. I am at my brother-in-law's house and he is running windows 7. He has a WPA2-PSK. I tried to connect my laptop but it is getting local only. I have gone through everyting I know to do, including uninstalling and reinstalling my wireless card.

    I tried to connect it to the cable direct from the modem but that did not even work. I am frustrated to say the least. The kicker is that my wife's toshiba with the exact same set up connects fine.

    I looked at my ipconfig and my compaq is not recognizing the router. the DNS is blank.

    Could it be my drivers? Would an external card help?
