That X means there is no connection available, that's all. But when you clicked it it tried to connect and found that connection had security enabled. It then asked you for the security key.
Do a system restore and leave it alone. Then do some research on wireless security.

My laptop normally connects with the wireless router but I have had to connect with a cable. There is a red X in the system tray over the Ralink Wireless LAN card, so I right clicked on it and it said Launch config utilities, my name was showing in the table, I highlighted it and clicked connect which took me to a page with WPA-PSK on it, I didn't know what to do, so clicked OK and it came up with the message:
Invalid WPA-pre-shared key WPA-PSK should use 8-63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex characters. I have absolutely no idea what this means. I think I messed it all up yesterday trying to see if I could get a microphone to work on the computer, and from reading something about going to add remove programs to set up speech, I accidentally clicked on the Ralink and its gone from the programme list, but the folder is still in the Programmes directory, I tried clicking on all the .exe files but nothing worked.
I have windows XP SP2, 1500 Mhz processor, 1.18 GB RAM, 40GB HDD
