How come an Atheros AR5007 card will not work with a Netgear wireless-N router?

Q: I have recently purchased a new Netgear Dual band wireless-N router. One of the laptops that has a Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g card in it refuses to work with the new router, while every other computer in the house works fine. The computer is running on Windows Vista.

    Is anything else in the house using the wireless connection? Can the laptop connect to another wireless network?

    Can you describe “refuses to work”, is the wireless network detected at all? Do you get an error message when trying to join?
