    Security Network Key is Incorrect

    Everytime I try to access the Internet through my wireless router, I get a
    message indicating that my security key is incorrect, when in reality it is
    correct. I only solve this problem after attempting to connect upwards of 20
    times. I have no idea what the problem is, but I did not have this issue
    with Windows XP. Essentially, I just keep trying to connect, over and over
    again, and finally it accepts my password. Anybody else have this issue?
    Maybe it has something to do with my protocol? I am using WPA-Personal and
    TKIP.

    Are you not broadcasting your wireless network SSID? If so, you may be
    connecting to another wireless access point near by. Enable broadcast of
    your SSID and that should solve the issue..

    Thanks I will try this, however, why would the password work sometimes, and
    not other times?
