My uncle just gave me a router to go along with my new laptop. We use Suddenlink cable internet. The router worked quite well with the modem, my new laptop, and the desktop until my uncle suggested encrypting the router on my laptop. He changed the passkey and set it to "TKIP". I lost the connection immediately after. I tried using the new password he wrote down but it did not work. I also tried setting it back to AES and changing the passkey. It failed. The desktop still has internet connection, but the laptop does not. I want the default settings so I can use my laptop again but I'm not sure what to do. I used the reset button on the router as well as System Restore and a reboot and nothing helped. I appreciate any help you are willing to give me.
EDIT: Now access to my desktop is limited, so I had to unplug the router and hook the ethernet cord back up to the modem itself. This is after trying to rename my passkey once again and unplugging everything and hooking it back up. Am I missing something?
