Windows 7: unable to connect WLAN adapter

unable to connect WLAN adapter

i recently bought a asus pce-n10 wlan adapter in order to make an AP for my smartphone/laptop to connect to (both have been ordered so i cant test it yet), my desktop is connected directly to the modem

problem is, without the asus utility software (which has outdated card drivers) i cant seem to get this card to connect, i made a screenshot with as much info on it as possible (if i forgot something i will make a new screen of it), its in dutch but i can translate it if necessary

as you can see it says its working correctly, even though it shows as "not connected", so windows doesnt seem to recognize it as a wireless network, have searched google for hours and tried numerous things (disable/enable, reinstalling drivers, winsock/tcpip reset) to no avail

thank you for your time and effort

decided to buy a wireless router instead, too much hassle and problems with this card, will probably go for a Netgear WNDR3700

I found out today why my new PC won't go onto the internet. It is a Acer 23in AS X1301 Desktop PC. I think it has no wireless adapter. I am going to get one. Hopefully it fixes it.
