I have virgin media modem and a netgear router. Been using router wirelesely with my PS3 for months now perfectly!

Now the problem..Ive just purchased a laptop, Bought a usb wireless dongle + a pcmcia card (they are both not connected at the same time) Ive tried both and i CANNOT FOR THE LIVING LIFE OF ME GET IT TO WORK. The strange thing is I CAN connect to 6 other wireless networks my laptop finds. However IT WONT connect to my own connection.

Ive tried various things including google searching for help AND manually configuring it myself. I can sometimes get to the point where it says CONNECTED and connection strengh EXCELLENT but no website will work.
