I have a Belkin Wireless G Router model# F5D7230-4 Ver. A000. I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this issue. Ok, here it is...

I used this router to connect my desktop to my isp comcast and it worked fine. Rescently I bought a little net book computer with XP home.. I belive sp2. I can connect to the internet fine when the encryption is off. But when I try to put a password on the wireless singnal it acts funny. I can wirelessly connect to the router and it says, "Singnal strength excelent." However I can't connect to the internet. When I turn off the encryption I connect to the router and it says the same thing, but I can get on the internet. As far as I can tell I did the correct thing for a passcode, because I can connect to the wireless singnal. Something is just stopping it from getting to the internet. It must be something with the encryption, but it is out of my realm of knowledge.

Someone please help me. Also, the program to help setup a wireless network and make it secure is of no help. I have tried everything I know how to do to fix this problem.
