Dell Vostro 1500 detects wireless networks but will not connect

My Dell laptop was rife with viruses so I decided to reinstall Windows xp on it. Using the Xp restore disk and driver resource cd that came with the laptop I was able to restore most of the hardware functionality with an exception to the wifi. I installed the dell wifi drivers from the disk but that did not bring about the windows wifi utility. After a search on google I found that I also needed dell proprietary software known as the Dell Multi Device Center. After installing the software could scan and detect networks but I could not connect to one. I tried turning off wep and I still could not connect to the network. My other laptop has no issues with the network. Any ideas?
