Mini 10 with 1510 wireless card will not connect to internet

I bought a Dell Mini 10 in summer 2009 with a 1510 wireless card. It runs Windows XP.

Recently it has been unable to connect to the internet.  The signal shows up as very good, but I cannot get it to connect.  It prompts me for a network key (letters a-f numbers 0-9), which I usually don't have. What I do have is the password to the network which is not the same as the network key and doesn't work.  

I tried re-downloading the driver.

I've been told that the issue is that the routers and wireless card have different types of encryption, but not how to fix that.

The netbook also has 2 different programs for the wireless network: Wireless Network Wizard and the standard Windows wireless network connection program.

Thanks!
