Why can't I connect to the wireless network after the network password was changed?

My family changed the network password and some other network settings after new computers were brought into the house, because apparently they wouldn't work with the settings or password we had.

"Ok, we found the answer. Two things: One, my family was able to remember the router password. Two, the tech came back and among other things:

changed the network name
disabled then re-enabled security options
changed our WEP key
changed our channel
changed our mode

There were many changes, but nothing I could get specific information on."

"Perhaps you think you have the right password, but in reality it isn't. So either log in to the router and verify it, or if you can't get into the router because you don't have that password, you need to reset it. If you need more help then post your router model.

I would also suggest that perhaps when the new computers were added, the the off-site tech may have flashed the firmware on your router and now some setting in the router setup isn't playing nice with your configuration/or adapter."

"Go to the wireless network connection properties.
Select the Security tab.
Enter a new password in the network security key field.
Try reconnecting the Wi-Fi again."
