      Make sure you're entering the network key all in capitals. If you already are, then do the following:

      Change the channel from auto to another channel.
      Change the SSID to something else.

      start > control panel > network and sharing centre > manage wireless networks > delete all the networks saved in there

      Reconnect up and it should be spot on.
