Hi, Try Changing the Profile though the Network and Sharing Centre (Windows Vista & 7) to do this...

 

Start > Control Panel > Network & Internet > Network & Sharing Centre, On the left there should be something saying "Manage Wireless Networks" click that, here you will see the SSID of your network (the name) you will then have to right click on it and click Properties, then on the tab of the window that has opened press Security here you will be able to change the settings, Hope that helped 🙂

go to network and sharing center, go to manage wireless networks, delete all entries, then go back to network and sharing and reconnect to your network and sign in. the reason the setting didnt match is because you changed the router setting
