The software included with my WiFi hardware has configuration tools with too many options which require excess tweaking. Is there a simpler way to do this with less settings? (see answer below) wireless wifi antenna

Let Windows 7 handle wireless networking instead of the software included with your WiFi hardware. Go to the Start Menu, select Control Panel, choose the Network and Internet category and click Network Connections; right-click the wireless-connection icon and select Properties.Then click the Wireless Networks tab and click the check box by Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings. If you can't see that tab, your WiFi receiver's driver doesn't support this Windows feature. Get a newer driver from the vendor's site; if one isn't offered, return the receiver.
