Cannot connect another laptop now

Hello.. I am having trouble with connecting to our linksys WRT54GS router with a laptop/xp pro s/p 2. This has been used on this router for a good couple of years. Usually we have three laptops connected , 2x xp (identical HP l/tops)& a Hp using vista.The vista l/top was the first one to decide not to connect,but after the help of onthelimit & configuring the router managed to get it to connect. Now have problems with just one of the hp xp l/tops...I go to "choose a wireless network" I can see our named router,click the connect button, and the window (comes up with the moving green progress bar that says please wait while windows connects to "family" network)then after approx 30 secs, reverts back to "choose a wireless network window. have copied pretty much the same settings as the identical l/top but it just won't there something i can try ? btw the l/top connects ok using an ethernet cable to the router... Any advice would be greatly appreciated...Sorry for the long winded post.....Steve
