Windows 7: Can't detect 1 wireless network

Can't detect 1 wireless network

Hello,

I have an very strange issue with my network adapter of model Atheros AR9285 802.11 b/ g/n wifi adapter over Windows 7 home premium edition
It detects several networks, but not the network I just configured from my home box. All sort of other networks are detected, but not this one.

Even configuring manually doesn't solve the problem, so I would assume there is a problem with this connection, but strangely enough, it's detected and works perfectly on my other computer running on Vista and equipped with Intel Wireless Wifi Link 4965 AGN #2.

I suspect there might be some settings problems in the configuration of the adapter, or even compatibility problems between the homebox I have and the adapter.

Here are the settings of the adapter:
802.11b Preamble -> long and short
AdHoc 11n -> Enable
Network address -> Not Present
Receive Buffers -> 256
Scan Valid Interval -> 60
Transmit Buffers -> 512

Here is the model of the box:
Freebox FADSL05C 0-ER

Here is the result of ipconfig /all run on the laptop:

The wired connection works with no problem and other wireless connection also, but this one I would like to set is just not detected.

Thank you in advance for any help,
Mathieu
