You mention "since a few weeks"...did this computer work fine on the router previous to a few weeks ago? If so, can you think of anything that may have happened to the machine around that time, or possibly did you install any network-related software, a VPN, etc.? You could always wipe the system and reload the OS in order to rule out software as being the issue. A friend had a similar problem, and it went away when he wiped the system and went to Snow Leopard. Obviously Snow Leopard will not work on this systemlaptop, but my point is that a fresh install may help. And of course make sure it is fully patched, because very early revisions of any Mac OS tend to have networking and especially wireless glitches.
