compatibility problem with wireless network card?

Model : TL-WA830RE

Hardware Version : Not Clear

Firmware Version :

ISP :


My range extender is working fine for all my devices except for my slightly old (4-5 years) Asus Eee PC notebook.
It sees my home network when connected to the repeater, but cannot get Internet access.
The computer did something similar in another house with a different range extender, which makes me think there is a problem with the wireless network card, but I can't find anyone to confirm this (which I would like to do before buying a new wireless network card).
The wireless network card I currently have is a Atheros AR9285.
Anyone know of any issues, or, alternatively, workarounds?
Thanks a lot,
Nik

Can you detect wifi on this notebook? How far away from your notebook to TL-WA830RE?
Can you login to the management page of TL-WA830RE on the notebook?

Thanks for the reply, Simon.
Rather oddly, turning off the repeater and turning it on again solved the problem. Very odd, as other devices were working.
Thanks anyway.
