Red X between router and internet.

Hi All
New to Plusnet but have a problem. Ive successfully connected my main laptop and my pad and phone via wireless with the password on the card and all is ok. Now, when I try to do the same with the otherhalfs laptop.. yup you guessed it. I know theres nothing wrong with the computer cos it connects to other networks at friends houses. Heres the set up from the screen.. hopefully in the order to make sence. BTW on Vista..
Network and Sharing Centre shows PC then green line to router Plusnet ... then a red cross to the Internet.
Access                    Local only
Connection            Wireless Network Connection (plusnet..etc)
Signal Strength      Excellent
Network Disc        on
File sh                    on
Public                      off
Printer sh                on
Password              on
Media                      off

Now, in the Manage wireless networks Ive got 3
Plusnetwireless..etc..        Security WPA2-personal          Type Any supported          Automatically connect
SSID                                                      WPA-Personal                    ditto                                          ditto
My Computer                                        WEP                                      ditto                                          ditto

Ive also shut down ALL security in case that was blocking it.
Connects ok with cable.. any help would be most grateful
Thanks
Andy

Sounds similar to http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,110978.32.html
Solution: update wireless drivers
