Are you entering the passcode for wireless connection? There is a configuration page you can open with your browser for most of the routers and with a specific ip address as the URL. You will have to specify an ip address for your computer at the same subnet. If the manual says the default ip address of the router is 192.168.0.1, then you can specify the ip address of your computer to 192.168.0.2 or something alike. Then you can open the configuration page, use the default administrator password specified on the manual to login. Then open the wireless configuration page and specify network ID and security features. If you choose WEP or WPA, you can specify a passcode or a passphrase for each device trying to connect to the router wirelessly.
1.Enter IP address http://192.168.1.1 (the factory-default IP address setting) to the URL web address location. 2. When the following dialog box appears, enter the user name and password to login to the main configuration window, the default username and password is “admin”. 3.Setup wizard is provided as part of the web configuration utility.

Click on Security. 5.Security This function enables user to set authentication type for secure wireless communications. Open System allows public access to the router via wireless communications.

You have to start from the beginning and my solution would be:
1) Remove any connections(also don't forget to turn of wifi on your laptop) to router and except the power cord. With the unit powered ON locate the reset pinhole on the back of router.
2) Press and hold reset button for at least 15 secs. then release, wait for 20-30 secs. before the router can completely rebooted.
3) Configure your Computer IP address to “Obtain an IP address automatically” .
4) Connect internet cable to router on port labeled "WAN". Connect PC to any LAN ports available.
5) Now lets configure wireless router. Open any browser you have (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). On the address bar type: "192.168.1.1" (without quotes). Default username: admin ; default password: admin click "OK".
6) Go through "SETUP WIZARD" until you reach the "Setup WAN Interface" page. On "WAN Access Type:" select "DHCP" then click next.
7) You may configure your "Basic Wireless Settings" to Public or Private until finished configuring.
8) On "Operation Mode" be sure you operate on "Gateway" mode.
You can configure the wireless router from unauthorized access by connect a LAN cable from the computer to the router and open a browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.

You need to have a cable connection from the laptop to the router first then go to the router setting by typing something like 192.x.x.x which differs from router to router.This should be available in the manual or in many cases are printed underneath the router.Once you get to the set up page for the router then you can set up the encryption type and create a key which will be needed by the laptop to connect to the network.Hope this helps.
