Wireless internet won't connect, only local

Netgear Wgr614 wireless router

Specs: Windows vista
So we used to have comcast internet and my
wireless worked fine but we just switched over
to clear and had to get a new router which is
netgear wgr614 and my roommates used the
security setting WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-
PSK [AES] saying that is the strongest and
fastest, well they are both able to connect but
i cannot and the only way i can use the
internet is by using a cord. Without the cord it just says unidentified, access: local only.

My ex fixed the problem by changing the
security option to WEP but had to change the
password and when I told my roommate she
flipped out and we had to change it back and
when I was at my ex's he put his wireless to
and my computer had no problem connecting,
so is there any way to fix this problem at my
apartment without changing the security
setting? Is there something I need to
download? My computer is HP windows vista
only a little over two years old.

You need to update your wireless adapter. Netgear makes a wireless 300mbps usb adapter wnpda3100. I would recommend you first lookup the model netgear router and select a compatable usb wireless adapter.
