Can't connect to router

Hi all, I posted this in the networking section but it might be a laptop problem and not a networking one.

I have recently switched over to TalkTalk from Tiscali. I connected the desktop pc no problem at all.

Then I tried to connect my laptop (Vista if it's relevant). When I click Start-Connect to, My router appears in the window along with a few others. But when I highlight my router and clisk "Connect", instead of a screen coming up for me to enter the password, the window disappears.

I called the TalkTalk helpline and he said there was a problem with my laptop, but it was fine on Tiscali. Although it was an established connection and I haven't tried to connect to anything new since Christmas.

If I use a cable it works perfectly and the desktop pc works perfectly wirelessly.

Many thanks
