Weird Wireless Behavior only on One Network

This is very hard to explain.  The wireless adapter has no problem hooking up to several networks, but the one at the house is another story.  I was using a Linksys WRT54G router and thought that it was bad, so I upgraded to a Netgear WNR3500.  Here is what happens.  When I go to connect to the network, Windows is unable to connect.  It will see the SSID, but cannot connect to it.  The only way that I can get it to connect is by changing the SSID in the router then it will connect just fine only for one time.  If I reboot the computer, it will not connect back up, and I have tried just about everything I can to get it back up.  So, I change the SSID and it will connect for a one time deal.  I have used windows to contoll the adapter and Intel PROSet/Wireless to controll it.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the adapter with no luck there either.  The weird thing is that both routers are acting the same and I get the same results using two different Laptops.  Am I going crazy???

Both Routers and more than one laptop? That is odd. When you try to reconnect and it does not work, what is happening? Are there any errors, or does it just try and then 'time out'?

I am getting a crazy internet explorer issue. I am using IE7. Whenever I open it up, it defaults to the home page. It sits there with the name of the site on the bottom. After 4 secs, it just closes with the common Microsoft error. I have sent the report with no information that is usable. Nothing has been installed lately. I also scanned for malware, removed it, and re-installed IE7. Any sugesstions.
