Default "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network..." problem. Help please

I have had a wireless network set up between a laptop and my PC which has
worked smoothly for a couple of weeks. Today when I booted up the laptop I
got the message "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you into
the network " on top of my sys tray icon which now has a yellow triangle and
exclamation mark on it! Now the laptop can't access the internet.

I browsed about and discovered this was something to do with encryption. Up
until this problem occuring I hadn't changed any of my router's (SpeedTouch
585) settings whatsoever or on the laptop. I tried putting in a brand new
WPA-PSK key into the router then put it into the laptop, but still the same
problem happens. I don't know is this is related but when I input the new
key into the laptop in Wireless Network Connection Propertieswireless
networkspropertiesassociation hit ok then return to that window it has
gone back to the router's default key, a 10 digit key which doesn't work. I
also tried to repair the connection but that hasn't worked either.

I also read that if, in the network propertiesauthentication, the "enable
IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network" box is enabled it can lead to
connection problems. But it is unchecked. In fact, even if I wanted to
enable it I can't because the entire box is greyed out. Can someone verify
if this is where I can fix the problem, how this window came to be greyed
out and how to fix it.

So how has this problem occurred and how do I fix it?

Help gratefully received.
