Windows 7 connects to all networks except my home netwo

This is a Repost withe correct Title...I have a Compaq Presario V6105NR laptop and a Netgear WGT624 V3 router.
I have a dual install-Media CenterXP and Widows 7.In XP I can connect to my Netgear router and any unsecured network in range.In Windows 7 I can only connect to unsecured routers ,not my own Netgear router.Netgear says my firmware is up to date.My security is WPA-PSK{TKIP}
I have tried disabling my windows firewall and only just installed Avast antivirus but the problem was there before Avast and is still there.I have found others on this forum with the same weird problem but no solution.Can anyone help?

Yes,thanks,good idea, Windows 7 does connect with my Netgear router when all the security options are off and I can get online with a good connection.But how do I run it with WPA (preferred) or WEP so that I am secure.I already knew that I could connect to the internet with Windows 7 by connecting to available unsecure networks and I know that when I go back to XP (Media Center) I can connect to my router with WPA security,so what do I try next?
