Looks like it has a wrong password.

Why not go back to WPA?

Otherwise, delete the connection and let Windows (or the program that manages your wireless connection) re-detect it.

Remember that for XP and most machines

There is NO STANDARD for managing the wireless network connections. This means you or those that administrate your PC has to share this information.
