windows 7 wpa

I came across a problem with Windows 7 RC when I tried to put it onto my works wifi network (which runs WPA encryption). My Laptop would not see the network at all!

Reading around I'm not alone and a number of people have had this problem.

The solution for anyone who is still looking relates to the Channel on which the wifi is broadcast. I found that simply changing the Channel on which the router broadcast solved the issue.

I suspect it is region related (RC1 is an American distribution) however I've not tested this theory. Change the channel on your router and you should be fine.
