Atheros AR5007EG wireless network adapter not working!?

I purchased Windows 7 to upgrade from Vista as many friends said it was really good, now I can't connect to my wireless network.  I purchased a ethernet cable and tried that, now it seems that I can connect with ethernet, but the strange thing is that the wireless actually works with the cable plugged in.  So ethernet cable and wireless works, NO ethernet NO wireless!?  If anyone has any ideas on how to resolve this issue so I can connect using wireless only, all input greatly received.

Hello, I was having problems with Atheros AR5007EG

and the solution was to change the SSID the network ID from a 13 digit name to a 10 digit name.  Perhaps this network card does not like longer SSIDs.  If you search google for "SSID too long" you get this webpage: - anyways it talks about the same problem.  I hope this helps!
