How to get my wireless connection working?

Hey there. Normally I simply enter the network security key to access my internet, but for some reason I keep getting authentication problems. I know it’s the correct key because I am successfully connected on my computer; I am now trying to connect with a tablet.

I think it might have to do with the WPS thing. I have a separate password from the access point for WPS. Do I have to put that before I put the WPA network key? If so, what does it do? Because I have put it before, but nothing’s happened.

I have a generic, no-name tablet, but it uses the Android system if that helps in terms of providing you with information about my problem.
@ Matt: Thanks for the answer, Matt! Can I do that if I am not the administrator? I am merely renting a room in a stranger’s house. I do have access to the modem, though.
Now, instead of saying “authentication problem”, it just keeps saying “connecting” over and over. It’s been doing that for the past 20 minutes.
I’m doing research about WPS pins and it says they are supposed to be 9-digits. The one on my router is only 8. Could this be the problem?
When I try to connect multiple times through WPS, it says that the WPS is still working and might take a while. How long should it take? It’s been hours (I’d been doing this for a while before I asked the question.)

    Try resetting the password on the software that came with your router/modem. If it did not then you may have to contact your Internet Provider so they can access your router settings. Hope this helps!
