Re: Connecting to my network
Sometimes networking problems are fixed by restarting the computers and other devices that work within the network (such as a router).
If the network is enabled by a router check the firewall settings on each computer. (Especially if those new computers have antivirus/firewall software from a different vendor). If the router has its firewall enabled also check those settings.

Hope this allows you to resolve the issue.
If your network is "unsecure", which means no pass keys will be provided by client computer when they connect, then you can do it. Just change your SSID from your router's admin interface and your connecting computers will recognize it as a new network and try to negotiate connection. If there is a passkey, then the connecting computers will be prompted for a pass key (though it is an old pass key) since they recognize it as a new network.
check your firewall setting.
check if your connection is working or not, by connecting to other pc if possible.
check if dns etc config for your internet is ok, for this you must call you ISP and check if there are no issues with you connection.
showing connecting cant mean actually connected, it wont work unless confuguration setting are good.
