Windows 7 users having wireless connection errors are suggested to check the wireless drivers installed on the system using Device manager. If the drivers are found incompatible, outdated or illegitimate, the drivers would have to be replaced to solve the issues.
Check system files
Issues with some of the system files on Windows 7 associated with the working of wireless drivers can also cause error messages when connecting to wireless connections. Windows 7 users experiencing wireless related errors are suggested to check the system files on the OS using the default system file checker ('sfc/scannow' command).
