    First.Disable encryption on the router.If you can connect,then re-enable and re-enter the password on the router and then try to connect.
    And.May we see:
    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)



    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    Log onto your router,using an ethernet connection.
    You then would look at either the wireless or security section.There you can disable encryption.
    If and when you connect,then you can log back into the router and re-enable/re-enter your password
    Your router user's manual should have a complete explanation of this procedure

    Regarding ipconfig
    Then you:type in:
    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
