Windows Vista will not connect to secure wifi network

Vista wont connect to wifi help!, shows good signal, I click connect it asks for a PIN however using public password protected wifi so skip this pressing "I don't want to configure this network now; I just want to connect"

Asks for additional login information so enter correct password and it starts trying to connect then says cannot connect

Click "diagnose the problem" and this message comes up "Windows could not automatically detect the correct security settings for this network" followed by "click for information on how to create or modify wireless network profiles" or "view available wireless networks" both of which are unhelpful

any advice Jen
