If they put an encrypted password on the router, then it also has to be set on the computer trying to connect to it using a wireless connect.
In general, most routers have a web editor. Type in your browser http://192.168.1.1 (or whatever you set the ip address for the router). Move through it's settings and see if a WEP has been set. If it has been set, you can disable and see if the wireless connects. If it isn't set....then that is another issue.
Did you try connecting the computer to the router using a CAT5 cable to make sure it connect with the router with a wired connection?
Hope this helps

go to start
on the wireless card adapter right click an go to "view available wireless networks"
select the wireless network you are trying to connect to
check the "allow me to connect even though the selected network is unprotected" box
then click on the "connect" button
that should get you going if on xp
