Question Wifi, Authentication attempt was unsuccessful, try again - Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS

Hi all,
I'm new to this forum and Linux. Just about week ago my friend installed Lubuntu on my little EeePC 900 32Gb (spare laptop). I was very exited, it seems to start very fast compared to XP, which I also have on the same machine.
Problem: It doesn't accept Authentication Key (contains 10 numbers)- I key it in and hit ok > Authentication attempt was unsuccessful, try again.
On XP side connection to my TP-LINK, Wirelless Adsl-2 Modem Rooter works OK, with the very same 10-number key.
Any help is very much appreciated, as I said I'm really starter in Linux.

Talking Wifi, Authentication attempt was unsuccessful, try again - Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS

Hi all again,

Reading and trying many things but finally happened to find the solution myself: I just first wrote into the 'KEY FIELD' my normal password to login Lubuntu and then it ask again Network key, in which now I put my normal 10-fig.key and IT WORKED!
Thanks anyway,
