I have set up a wireless network in my home via a Motorola SBG900 Cable Modem Gateway.

It works fine except that sometimes, for no reason, my computer refuses to connect to the network and tells me my wireless security key is incorrect.

All of my security settings are configured automatically and I know I am typing the WPA security key correctly.

I reset the router and get the same message.

Eventually it corrects itself, but it is annoying. Can anyone explain why it is happening and what, if anything, can be done to keep it from happening?

IS your wireless network name (SSID) unique to any surrounding wireless networks? Your computer may trying to access a neighbors network with the same name (SSID) but a different key.

Assume that I already did an Internet search.

Yeah it's a unique SSID and very unlikely there'd be any like it around.

Maybe you can just change the WPA pre-shared key and test again. If possible, download and install the latest firmware for router and driver for wireless adapter.
