I have also done this:You want and need to encrypt your wireless signal. Login to your router via your browser, go to the wireless section and enable WPA (or WPA2 if supported by router and laptop) encryption. Use a passphrase of 20+ letters and numbers. You will then need to give the same passphrase the next time you connect the laptop.
It was working .Do I have to make any changes to the laptop. I clicked repair to renew the ip address and it said it couldnt .

I wasn't being patient. I was sleeping. :)

Glad you got everything sorted out.
