Wireless Connection Issue

I have a verizon wireless router (N) connected to a Netgear range extender for additional coverage.  I installed a Linksys wireless N dual-channel PCI card in an older XP machine and got it connected.  Using WPA2 security with a PSK. on both the verizon router and the netgear.  Problem is this...  I keep getting requests for authentication popping up every 10 minutes or so.  I am letting windows XP manage the connection and have removed the linksys utility.

Any ideas as to why the machine keeps asking for a password?

Can you provide a screen grab of the popup dialog, please?

You didn't tell us the model# of either infrastructure device, so we have no idea if those are also dual-band devices.

UPDATE: I seemed to have resolved the issue by deleting all other configured wireless connections except the one being used.  Seems a prior used connection was trying to connect to the extender and being refused for lack of a correct PW.
