Stuck on "Attempting to Authenticate" wireless connection

Hi im new to this, i can not connect to my wireless network from my pc. My laptop is fine. The problem did seemed to correct itself every few days where i got brief internet connection but it's been dead for a week now and everything I try seems to fail.

The OS is Windows 7 ultimate 32bit and im using a broadcom 802.11g network adapter. The signal strength is good. Ran all the windows trouble shooters... nothing, though it works wired. After clicking connect im told that it is attempting to authenticate forever and that is all that happens, apart from being told that the connection is taking longer then usual!

The ISP is Sky BB and i have phoned them and they say its an issue with my pc?

I dont get why it works sometimes, then doesn't.

Any help or advice would save the pc going through the window!

Cheers
