Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.
When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.
WPA2 is superior as it doesn't suffer from the recently discovered flaw with WPA that allows limited cracking, though it's not a method to actually allow someone to connect. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.

Hello, I'm trying to connect wirelessly from a Lenovo SL410 laptop to my fully functional home network.
I have unchecked the authentication box in network properties and entered the existing network key. steve UPDATE: My home net was set to WPA2 (from my Win7 desktop), which XP doesn't appear to offer. The IE error apparently is due to an old version, I switched to Firefox and there are no further problems.
It looks like you are using WPA-EAP on your computer.
