Can Connect to Router but unable to connect to internet - OS Vista

I recently re installed Vista to my Dell(back to factory setting) computer.
After many unsuccessful attempts at trying to connect to my USB adapter(BELKIN  Model:F7D2101 v1)
I download Drivers form from Belkin web site for the vista OS

Upon checking the network status on vista it was showing me that I had Not successfully made a connection to the router and from the router to the internet there was a big "X"

If I click on view wireless connection, I can see my Wireless connection name but when I’m try to connect with WPA password , the following message

Windows cannot connect to RyanO2

-> Diagnose the Problem

-> Connect to a different network

I already installed Norton Anti virus guard, but I already disabled.

Can someone please advise me if there is anything that I am missing on the
Vista OS that will not allow me access to the internet and open up one of the
key functions of a computer

Lastly   wireless adapter work perfectly before i format the computer(before back to factory setting)

It looks like the Belkin adapter you're using has it's own software for connecting to the wireless network. Are you using the Belkin software or the Windows built-in wireless connection tool to connect to the router? If you're using the Windows software try using the Belkin software instead.

Try using the Windows software as opposed to the Belkin software to connect to the network.

Try to remove Norton and install the driver again. It can be that Norton is interfering with the drives.

Personally I'm not a big fan of Norton, it is eating a lot of resources and it can block certain programs.
