Accidentally disabled wireless SSID broadcast - can't enable

A couple of days ago I wanted to set a password for our linksys network (to prevent others from using it). As I was trying to impress my less geeky family, I typed the IP-adress and logged in with "admin" as both username and password (after following a how-to of course, I'm not very technical) and I accidentally clicked "disable" on the wireless SSID broadcast, and as a consequence we can now only connect by using a cable. I want to enable the wireless again, and tried several times to re-do what i did, but for some reason I can't login to the linksys-site again. I have tried typing the IP-adress over and over again, but this time it doesn't work.

In lack of technical skills I actually don't know what I'm talking about, so I hope someone will understand my poor english and non-proffessional expressions ;)

Does anyone know what to do? I'm getting a little anxious, and I'm not quite popular in my family atm... :unsure:

I would really appreciate any help from you :help:

Hello Anniken Due...

Most routers have a reset button that will put them back at default settings. It will be quite small and will likely be the kind of button you have to push with the tip of a pen or similar object. Press that for a few seconds and give it a minute to reset...then you should be able to log on to the router using the default user name and password.
