    Can your Inc see the networks? Are you using any security (password) or open? Try using an open network just to make sure you can connect. If you still are having issues, drive to a populated area and try connecting to someone's open network (there will be one)

    If you keep having issues, you may have to try a hard reset, and if still no luck, could be a bad chip in the phone.

    I have verified that it does work on my Win7 x64 using connectify. Could be the wifi card in your pc isn't compatible(maybe?)

    Do you have another laptop or wifi card you can try?
