Default Can't enter network key

I just did a clean install of XP (currently running SP1). I'm done installing all necessary drivers, but I still can't get my wireless internet to work. If I try entering my network key (eg. 01619595243), it gives me the following error message.

I'm quite sure there's nothing wrong with my router settings; both my Macs and my Pocket PC can connect to the network using the exact same key.

you gotta type it twice. one in the first field, and another time in the "confirm network key" field.

It turns out that the key I was entering wasn't the right now. Thanks anyway.

Make sure the service is started too.

I believe it is called Wireless Zero Configuration.

sometimes when doing a fresh install of Windows , will automatically turn off some of the services for networking, checking them to make sure their turned on after a fresh install will usually solve the prob.
