On some systems and with some older encryption like WEP, as long as the passcode matched the length of the password required, it would let you connect or rather it would show you connected but with limited connectivity.

This is the state that tends to trick people into thinking they have a good WIFI connection to the network, but something else is wrong, when in fact, they DO NOT have a working connection to the network even at the base security layer before the TCP stack even begins binding. Once this is done, you reconnect to the network and make sure that you're tying in the usually case sensitive password as it's given to you.

If that still doesn't work, then test with another device.
