I purchased a netgear router and have successfully connected 3 other computers to share my internet connection. The th computer is running windows vista business, I install the software for netgear and the wireless usb. I go to start the netgear software and it appears to open up on the desktop only to close again really quick. I go into the network area and i'll see my network name and once it connected for a micro minute and then it'll dissapear so i'm not getting connected.

I've run network wizard, troubleshooting etc and no joy.
Can someone walk me through the steps to get this vista business to see and share my internet connection?
