Thanks for trying to solve this problem. But, in your link above there just Tutorial how to connect to Wi-fi.
I have problem when trying to connect to my home wifi (Connected but, need password) i tried to connect with 8 digit password but it can't log me in. But, in the other hand my phone, my sister's laptop can log in into Wi-fi with the same password. In windows 8 i can't log in with that password. said "your pin is incorrect"

You have to set the correct security options in Windows that the router is set for, as shown in Brink's option #3:



I would also raise the number of digits in the password to something much higher than 8, and use random characters with shifts and number shifts while you're at it.
