Why can't I get WPA to work with linksys router and linksys/WinXP client?

    The connection works without encryption. Once WPA-PSK is turn on the client and
    the router connect, exchange data(seems to be attempting to authenticate) and
    then fails.

    It seems to be the 802.1x part I haven't setup correctly. What is the process
    for WPA? Has my approach must be too simplistic(see below) and I missed a step.

    1) Linksys Router befw11s4 v4 upgrade to the latest firmware (152.02), WPA-PSK
    enable, TKIP enabled, shared key type in, 3600 for group key renewal.
    2) Winxp upgrade for WPA supplicant. WPA_PSK selected from wireless network
    properties. Same shared-key typed in to wireless network properties.
    3) Linksys WUSB11 v2.8 (driver, besides upgraded the driver, made no
    settings changes.

    Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated.
