Windows 7: Cant connect laptop to router

Cant connect laptop to router

I have a Netgear DGNB2100 Wireless N router. It is connected to an old PC via Ethernet cable. That connection works.
While downloading a 64 bit driver to use for the USB adapter for my PC, I connected my laptop to the wireless network with the laptops WiFi card (Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG), and used the internet for about ten minutes.
I then configured the USB adapter for my PC, after disconnecting the laptop.
My laptop will detect the network, but when I put in the password, I get a message saying Network Security Key Mismatch, and am prompted to type the key in again.
I have also tried pressing the WPS button on the router instead of typing in the password with no luck.
The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5920, with the aforementioned Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card, and it is running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.
