What errors are showing? If it's not picking up the router's SSID then log off all your connected machines and then reboot the router. Once the router has settled try connecting your laptop first. Could be an IP address issue. Then connect the others one by one.

Hi Telling us that you can't get your head around or it doesn't work does not help us one bit in trying to diagnose the problem. Have you done what rdave13 asked you to do as it is the first stage of trying to determine where the problem lies without going off at a wild tangent and getting nowhere fast

Have you installed the driver for it?? This is found on the motherboard disk W7 doesn't install these divers by default.
