problem getting online - wireless

Having replaced my old desktop pc with a new one, I upgraded to wireless broadband as AOL said my old BT voyager broadband modem was incompatible with Vista. All is ok apart from one irritating problem. Whenever I want to connect to the net I switch on the Thompson Speedtouch 585 router and attempt to connect via Internet Explorer. I always get a message to say that a connection cannot be made. I have a Netgear WPN111 wireless adaptor and the only way I can seem to get connected is that I have to pull out the adaptor from the pc and then reinsert it , I can then get connected. Can anyone suggest what I can do to avoid having to do this every time I want to go online?
