Can't connect to my own router.

I have a new Gateway laptop with a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter and Windows XP.  
I have a Westell Versa Link 327W wireless router.

I have 2 existing laptops that currently work with my router.  The new laptop will not connect to the router wirelessly BUT it can connect by Ethernet AND can connect to neighboring  wireless routers with no problem.  

When ever I attempt to connect wirelessly I get the following error…“Windows in unable to connect to the selected network.  The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the this of available networks, and try to connect again.”  

I have attempted to connect with WEP security enabled and with it unsecured.  Please tell me what I am missing!  I have reset the router twice.

Try upgrading the firmware on the router and drivers on the wireless card. Also try using the wireless utility that came with the card instead of the windows wireless utility.

i would also try upgrading the firmware on the router
Do you have MAC filtering enabled?  If so, then you need to add the MAC address of the Broadcom to the access list on the router.

Do you have any security running that your existing devices have already been configured for?  If so you need to configure the new one with same WEP key or whatever.

Don't know what the problem was, nothing worked so I just bought a new router (Belkin 54G) and it works fine.
