Sometimes with Vista I had to set up Network connections on laptop in question via Ethernet then disconnect and go wireless, with a new round of setup.. Some laptops have a manual switch as well. Why I switched to Apple.

My Linksys router made it very easy, by allowing me to create a "software key" to download to a USB Drive. Plug that USB Drive in the laptops, ran the software key, and voila, internet and network access....

Might need to look at the NetGear software to see if something like that is an option....
