1. RECOMENDED - Please use “WPA2-ONLY security” instead of “WPA+WPA2 mix mode” on GUI router setting. This will prevent that the client from using incorrect WPA (TKIP) packet transmission error; the fail will trigger router 802.11 function - MIC failure. So, it can be fixed if you just select WPA2-only and has better security mode.
2. Please upgrade your Intel 4965ABGN driver and don’t use third part build in NB application to manage your wireless client. The Microsoft default WZC (Windows zero configuration) wireless management is recommended.
