extremely frustrated here, help needed!

basically my laptop which is windows seven used to connect wirelessly and now it doesn't.
it says i CAN connect, but it just won;t, i've entered my WEP key and it is correct, and it doesn't work, this is so frustrrating as i need this to work for next week.
the pictures below show the problems!
i have a desktop too which is connected to the same router/network and it is doing fine with no problems

sorry the third picture was meant to show the lower right window saying 'unable to connect' but i was too early in screen capping that. the troubleshooter was also useless
