Windows 7: Vaio cannot connect to N type wireless

Vaio cannot connect to N type wireless

Hey guys!

I have a vaio EB2S1E and one router Linksys WRT120N. Both devices have the N wireless standard. When i set the router to Wireless N-only, my notebook cannot conect to it anymore, i see it as a device but after i enter the SSID it will not connect. If i leave it to Mixed or Wireless G-only or set it to Wi-Fi Protected Setup the notebook connects fine and i am amble to copy with 2.5 mb/sec :??:
I have posted a picture with the settings, can anyone tell me what am i doing wrong?

PS I have two onboard LAN cards one Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller and one Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller. Is there any difference between them, besides the name? Which one is better to use with my router?

Thank you for reading this!

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Looks like you solved this already.

As you found out, using the manual wireless connection set up in Windows 7 allows you to choose WPA2 and AES encryption which usually works best with Windows 7.

Yes, the router was set for TKIP or AES authentication, when i set it up to just to AES and set the wireless connection manually to AES it worked fine.
Thank you for your support!
