When the laptop searches for a connection, it will find your router and you then have to enter the password or encryption key sequence that you would have set up on your pc when configuring the router. Log in to your router. the address will be probably http://192.168.0.1 ( enter this where you would normally enter the www. address of a web site. Enter the relevant password, default password is normally admin. Select Wireless settings and look at the section headed WEP or WPA security key.. The password sequence will be shown as Key 1. This is the sequence that your grandsons laptop is looking for. Zak has also pointed you to the relevant section of the manual which will help.
