Windows 7 problem connecting to Aironet 1130AG AP

Unanswered Question

We currently have Windows XP Pro laptops that are configured to connect  with our Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point and everything works fine.  I am  trying to configure new Windows 7 laptops using the same settings we  used for the XP Pro laptops and they will not connect to the AP.  Have any of  you run into configuration issues with Windows 7 and Cisco wireless access point connectivity  and found a solution?  Is there any documenation on how to configure Windows 7 with Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Points?

I have this problem too.

Hi kevin,

Whats the client utility that we are using?? download intel proset (if not yet used till now) latest version on the Win 7 and try connecting to the same profile.



The wireless card is a Dell DW1501 wireless N WLAN Half Mini Card (Broadcom is the manufacturer).

I had the router setup to not broadcast.  I changed it to broadcast and Windows  7 still will not connect.  Do you have any other suggestions?  Windows 7 is  32-bit on the laptops and I read somewhere online that mentioned they had  the same problems with 32-bit but not 64-bit.  The XP laptops wireless  configuration is WPA-Enterprise with Cisco Leap along with user name and  password.
