Thanks, that got me in!

I'm not sure where I should be looking. Here's what the menu at the top of the screen looks like.

Ok, here's what I have.

Do I want to change the status to Enable?

The status is 'Disabled' which is a good thing, no need to have that page open anymore.

Next, try deleting the Network from your Laptop with the issue. Open the 'Network and Sharing Center' and click 'Manage Wireless Networks' then click on the Network you're trying to connect to, then click 'Remove'.

Now you will be able to retry connecting to the network and all credentials (on the laptop side) will be reset.

Don't worry nothing within the router will be affected
