Do you get a signal meter in the notification area on your desktop? If so, double click on that. You may be prompted to enter your WPA/WPA2 credentials if you have your network secure.

If you don't see a signal meter, please cut and paste output from the following commands:

Hi, I have the same problem.Did you get solved your problem.It is funny that VIsta and explorer can not find my own modem&net work but finds my neighbours or when I am with my daughters home I could get connected.

Write to me if you have an answer. I am also trying.
