having trouble securing my wireless laptop

    I have the new Linksys wireless router which gets it's internet connection
    via a linksys cable modem.
    All my computers use my old wired cat5 cables except my new Toshiba laptop
    which is wireless.

    I have no problems connecting from anywhere in my home.


    Even though I carefully read and tried to implement the instructions from
    the above URL
    I can't seem to make it work correctly.
    As soon as I complete these instructions, I loose the ability to connect to
    the web via the wireless laptop.

    I'm missing something here....
    Like a primer "Wireless security for REAL STUPID DUMMIES".
    Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

    Please and thank you.

    I've used those two sites previously
    but as soon as I try to set the encryption method in both the wireless
    router and the laptop the same, I loose connection, I get low signal message
    I'm missing something basic here.
