Dell 8600 centrino intel pro wireless lan 2100 won't connect to netgear n150 wnr1000. Running 802.11b band it sees wireless network but won't connect. I have 2 other computers connected to network so it works.... I don't know if Netgear n150 is compatible with 802.11b band...

It's probably the wireless card can't work with the security standard you have set for the router. As a test, don't use any wireless security and see if you can connect. That LAN chip has issues connecting to some networks, I think it's one used in the IBM T40 and T41 models (maybe 2200 and not 2100), and I have seen issues with them. Get an external wireless card, should work then, they are pretty cheap.
