Can't Connect To Wireless Router - Win Vista

I recently installed Win Vista on my tablet PC. It's coming along, things are a little different. But one of the first things I wanted to do was get connected to my wireless network. Vista can see my network & the strength is very good. I click to connect...Then it aska for the passphrase. I enter it in & then it tells me I can't connect. I've tried several different ways & I even logged into the router using my PC (Which is directly wired to the router) & changed the passphrase in case for some weird reason I didn't remember it. That didn't work either. I don't have MAC address filtering or anything like that. Does anyone have an idea why this wouldn't be working? I did use my old fashioned wired router & tried to connect that way & it did, but that won't really let me go out of the room that has the router - That was just a test anyway to see if it would go online.

P.S. I did want to mention that if I turn all security off, it will connect. I had it using WPA (AES) security before. So, this tells me it has something to do with the security. I will say when I used XP Pro on the tablet, the wireless connection worked great!
