    I double check the wireless settings and make sure you don't use WPA
    enterprise. If you do have correct settings, are you running manufacturer's
    wireless software? or this search result may help.

    It seems that you are running a router with WPA2 security and your XP
    does not have the WPA2 post SP2 update.
