    I had the same problem on my new 15" MBP when running Win 7. My solution was:

    1. Click the small network icon in the lower right corner
    2. Click "open networks and sharing"
    3. Click "manage wireless networks"
    4. Right-click on your network and select "properties" from the context-menu
    5. Check the "connect even if the network are not broadcasting SSID" box

    At least that worked for me.

    PS. I have a norwegian version of win 7, so it's only a rough translation.
