Windows 7 "Limited Access" to internet after adding pass to Linksys

As the title suggests, currently running Windows 7 64-bit, and have had no troubles with my internet in some time. Finally went ahead and set up security on my Linksys router today, but immediately after my PC could no longer connect to the network.

There are two laptops, a desktop, a Playstation 3, and two smart phones that all have no troubles with accessing the network now, but this specific desktop continues to show limited access, despite having full bars. Help?

How about your system specs, network setup, type of encryption, etc?

Hello,

You may refresh your wireless profiles stored by deleting all of them, then try again to reconnect to your own SSID make sure to type in the correct network encryption.
An option is to manually add SSID:
