      Things to try:

      • Bring the IBM close to the router while testing in case it's a weak signal problem (several feet away will do fine)
      • Change the wireless channel, some old cards didn't like channel 13
      • Check the wireless mode is 'g & b', the Netgears sometimes have an 'Auto 108Mbps' mode which confuses some wireless cards
      • Check you haven't switched MAC address filtering on!
      • Try without any wireless security (just for a few moments while testing)
      • If that works double and triple check the WPA key you're entering is correct (case sensitive, and 0 isn't the same as O)!
      • Check if you're now using WPA2-PSK, you might have previously been using WPA-PSK
      • Some old cards could only use WEP, others only WPA-PSK with TKIP.
