It sound like your wireless settings on the laptop are incorrect...pay close attention to your encryption settings as they are often the cause. In fact, I would suggest disabling encryption on the wireless router as a test and seeing if the laptop will connect correctly. If it does you know the problem is in your security settings.
I wonder if you had your problems resolved? I have a similar situation with a Trendnet wireless PCI card, TEW-443PI. It was a brand new card I purchased on-line. The card had locked up my computer whenever it was inserted and when it was removed, my computer was back to working fine. If you had your issues resolved, please share it with me since I still have the same lock-up problem with the thing inserted into a PCI slot.
