    Could be a problem with the wireless security, try it (temporarily) without and see if it connects.

    You'll need to access the administration page for your wireless router (usually 192.168.0.1 - check your manual) and then under "wireless security" settings switch it off. If you can then connect to the unsecured network then chances are it is a problem with the old wireless card not supporting the encryption properly on newer wireless routers. Remember to turn the encryption back on.
