Hi there :)

Go here: http://www.fixya.com...l-14181/page-12

That is page 12 of an online manual for your router. It tells you how to access your router's configuration. From there you can click on wireless on the left hand side and set up your wireless options and security.

Ah, I don't think that's helping very much. I just need to set up a password so no one else can get it and nothing is working.

Well, where is it you are having trouble?

Were you able to access the configuration page? When you clicked on wireless on the left hand side did you see options that included the type of security (WEP/WPA/WPA2) and fields labeled "key 1, key 2, etc." ?

To set a password you select a type of encryption, say WPA, and type in a password or "key" in one of the fields

Okay, the security is disabled.. so which one would I click for it? When I clicked on WPA it came up like this...

PSK / EAP: PSK EAP ... (there are circles before both of them, so I have to pick one of them)

Passphrase: _______

Confirmed passphrase: _____

Okay, so I clicked on PSK and then typed in a password and stuff and then I went onto my laptop to disconnect and then try to reconnect and see if it asked for a password but it said something about the settings not being the same on my computer.

Right, it was just noticing that the new settings are not the same as those you had before.

Is your laptop not able to connect to the network? I think we have a misunderstanding. What was the error you got?

It is possible your laptop does not know how to deal with WPA encryption, older wireless cards can't. You might have to go back in and change the encryption type to WEP, an older, but more compatible encryption method.
