    Up until this afternoon, i had been able to access my wireless network fine. However, I had taken my computer outside, and tried to connect. I was not able to, and had xp try to "repair" the problem. No luck. I brought it back into my room, but it still didn't work. It will say "acquiring network address" on and off, but never connect. Everyone else in the house can connect to it fine, and i can still connect to it through ethernet cable, and to other wireless networks besides this one. I ran a diagnostic, where it said that the network keys did not match up, i checked them, and the diag report gave me this.

    Can anyone help?

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect that way. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

    Thank you so much. I was able to connect without encryption, and upon re-enabling security, i was able to log back in(albeit after 2-3 min.). I still don't know why it did this in the first place, but once again thank you.

    That was certainly quick! You're welcome. :)

    The way I explain it to myself is that sometimes the encryption between router and adapter gets "out of sync" and that little dance is the surest way to recover. Sometimes just deleting the wireless profile from your computer is sufficient.
