    click on the show key and make a note of your current passwod
    then
    try disable the
    WPA-PSK
    AND
    WPA2-PSK

    before that you could just make sure you are using that KEY correctly to connect

    I'd also try channel 1. Can you connect with the encryption disabled? After trying channel 1?

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site.

    xirrus show a none/open connection so that has disabled the security - so that worked

    now follow TerryNet advice
    Page 51 figure 30
    control channel
