Using Windows 7 Pro 32 bit.

I have a laptop that used to connect to a wireless router using WPA2-Personal.

I have to temporarily downgrade to a wireless router that uses WPA-Personal.

So I went ahead and changed the Security Type to WPA-Personal in the Windows connections settings, but when I try to connect, I see an "X" next to the SSID, with the message:
