Dell Inspiron 6000 wireless card not connecting to my wireless network

My wireless card doesn't seem to be picking up my wireless network.  I've tried doing the following, and it stil hangs when I try to connect to my network.  I can however, connect to other wireless networks.  Here's what I've tried:

1) ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew
2) restarting the wireless router and cable modem
3) reinstalling the wireless driver on my computer
4) restarted my computer

What else could be wrong?  It seems that its specifically with my wireless card and my own network.  Also, I can connect to my network using other computers.

Ideas?

Does the wireless card show up in Device Manager?  Have you opened the bottom of the laptop to verify that one of the antenna wires didn't come off the wireless card?  Are you using the windows wireless client?
Did you already download and install the wireless card driver from here:
