    are you running xp sp2? and is the router configured with a wpa2 key?

    If so, theres a patch from MS you need to install on XP to allow it to use wpa2. Found that out the hard way with the wireless on my lappy at home. If it is, let me know and i'll try to dig out the patch link.

    Edit: This should be it.

    Note that KB 893357 seems to have been replaced by KB 917021.

    This is a patch that I wasn't previously aware of - so thanks for the link anyway!
