Default Can See Wireless Connection, but cannot connect to it

Ok, sorry if this is a repeat, but i am using a D-Link DSL G604T, i just put a D-Link DWL-G520+ wireless network card into my desktop, for some reason it can find the wireless connection, but when i click connect, the window that says, please wait while windows connects just stays there, after a few minutes it dissapeares and it isnt connected, i dont understand why i can see my wireless network, but cant connect, i have set all my ip thingies to Obtain ip automatically, i cant think of anything else that would be proventing it, i turned my firewalls off and all. i have 2 comps connected directly to the router, i used to wirelessly connect my mothers comp to it, but cant seem to get mine to connect.

any help will be muchly appreciated!

thanks!
