Default Confused Wifi

hey folks,

i thought i was mildy intelligent when it came to computers and the "basics" around them but this one has me rather stumped :?

The problem: i have a mini netbook which i recently wiped clean and reinstalled windows XP on. I've done this a couple of times on this actual netbook but this time i've rebooted used the same drivers for network, graphics etc as i always have but it now won't connect to my router?

i'm with sky broadband and have'nt changed any settings.
The built in windows wireless thingy will see my broadband connection but when i click connect it says the network may have gone out of range or not be available. It's not i'm 2 meters away and my iphone connects fine.

I've reset the router, and tried connecting to another wireless network and it's fine. Also if i drop my security on my router it connects. I'm currently using WPA2-PSK (AES)
He who has never failed has never attempted anything worth succeeding at.
