RN-XV WiFly AUTH-ERR Problem

I am experiencing problems with getting my WiFly to connect to my wireless network. I am using the mbed application board with the LPC1768 and RN-XV rev 3. I am using the Hello World with a wifly module here http://mbed.org/users/samux/code/Wifly_HelloWorld/ with debug on.

Debug output is as follows:

[Wifly : DBG]will send: $$$

[Wifly : DBG]check: CMD

[Wifly : DBG]will send: set w j 0

[Wifly : DBG]check: AOK

[Wifly : DBG]will send: set u m 1

[Wifly : ERR]sendCommand: cannot join

[Wifly : DBG]will send: exit

[Wifly : DBG]check: EXIT

I assume I have inserted the WiFly object correctly (WiflyInterface wifly(p9, p10, p30, p29, "MY_SSID_GOES_HERE", "MY_PASSWORD_GOES_HERE", WPA);) as I am observing the above.

I have tried the following:

1. Increase the Increase timeout from 500 ms to 1000 ms as suggested here http://mbed.org/users/mbed_official/code/WiflyInterface/pull-request/2

2. Tried the various authentication modes; WPA1, Mixed WPA1 & WPA2-PSK, and WPA2-PSK. Here are my wireless security settings. /media/uploads/pampt/netcomm_wireless_security.jpg

3. Tried another wireless network.

Any assistance would be sincerely appreciated.

P.S. I have successfully used Configure wifly module https://mbed.org/users/samux/code/Wifly_configure/ to achieve a connection but still don't understand why the "Hello World with a wifly module" example didn't work for me.

P.P.S. It works now! I did a factory reset of the WiFly module settings and saved them. The example program now works. I can only think that my fiddling around had resulted in incorrect settings in the WiFly module.
