If this fails to resolve your issue, remove your network from the Prefered Networks list and then just use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard found in Control Panel to create your wireless network.

ensure that the wireless drivers are updated to the latest version.

I changed the settings for the wireless connection from "obtain IP/DNS Automatically" and put in the various addresses...

I have never encountered this with other wireless connections for which I have the password.
