You first enable WPA in the router as explained in the fine manual
Then you enable WPA on each wireless station using the Wireless Network
Setup Wizard
You then take each laptop up to the desktop, get on to the router from the
desktop, and get the router to display the key.
You enter this key to each of your wireless computer. It may take several
tries (at least it did for me) to get the key correct.
Then, you just start the network on each of the wireless computers.

With considerable care, you should get each wireless computer working in
about 5 minutes.
