Wireless internet problems!

Hello all! I've recently bought a new laptop: Asus Z53JR-AP089C Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo T5300. It is running Vista. (which perhaps could be one of my problems?!) It has wireless built in, but I can't seem to connect to the internet. The router is Netgear and at a guess, I think it's been here for about 3 years. When I try to connect to a network the laptop can see that the netgear network is there but when I try to connect to the netgear network it says "Wireless association failed because Windows did not receive any response from the wireless router or access point". The signal tends to be good or excellent so it can't be that which is causing the problem. The desktop is able to connect to the internet through netgear no problem at all. My previous laptops before they suffered their untimely deaths were able to connect to netgear with a wireless card. As wireless is built in in this computer it doesn't have an option for inserting a wireless card.

If anyone could give me any advice I'd be very grateful indeed! Thank you! :)
