1. Although this KB article and downloadable update is related to
hibernation and doesn't fit your situation exactly, it apparently fixed
a poster's problem with only WEP working and not WPA. I think it is
worth a try in your case.
2. You can also run this MS program to see if your wireless router is
compatible with Vista:
MS Internet Connectivity Evalution Tool -
3. Contact Trendnet to see if they know of any issues, workarounds,
firmware updates, etc. for your router. If Trendnet says your router is
not compatible with Vista and they are not planning to update it,
purchase another router.
