Reset your router by pressing the reset switch (usually there is a small hole on the back of your router) this will reset it to its default settings... hope this helps..

Highlight your connection then select Disconnect on the Connect to a Network popup when you click connection icon in System Tray. Then reconnect with correct key.

If this fails, use Manage Wireless Network in Network and Sharing Center: highlight, Remove and then add back.
