Wireless network connection status validating identity


Hello, I'm trying to connect wirelessly from a Lenovo SL410 laptop to my fully functional home network.I have unchecked the authentication box in network properties and entered the existing network key. steve UPDATE: My home net was set to WPA2 (from my Win7 desktop), which XP doesn't appear to offer. The IE error apparently is due to an old version, I switched to Firefox and there are no further problems.None of these changes gets saved.I try to connect, I get a permanent validating identity message and all of the settings I entered are erased. I can't access the router setup page because Internet Explorer loads, then encounters an error and has to close.
