Default WPA Not working on some routers?

I have a little netbook that i carry around. It has the wpa supplicant setup to connect to a dozen networks at my job sites and office. The routers are namely linksys and netgear routers. Ive never really had a problem setting up other networks except for my home network!

the router is a
Netgear Wireless-N 300 WNR2000 v2

Has anyone heard of problems with this router? I have it seutp to except both wpa and wpa2

Dos the connection work on an open network?

I understand you want WPA, but it's useful to try as a test, just to make sure the problem is actually in the WPA and not in the connection itself.

I have that exact router at home. Make sure ACL's are turned off. I wasted a bit of time troubleshooting a wireless card in an OpenBSD laptop only to find out the router somehow had ACL's turned on, but with nothing defined, causing it to reject everything.
