No connection with WPA PSK - TKIP protection in Vista

    Despite all the efforts, I have not been able to connect to a router that has a WPA PSK -
    TKIP protection. I am using Windows Vista. I have read that this is one of Vista's
    unresolved issues, and a registry key change is the only way to fix it. Is it true ? Is
    there a workaround ?? Some help would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    I tried to get to the registry path mentioned in the Microsoft article but I got stuck in
    the "GUID" thread: how do I know which one is which ?? There are many keys coded in hex
    values. :-(

    If you can get dhcp from that router without security,
    probably the registry issue is not relevant.
