Problem with wireless network on laptop

I am connecting a laptop to a wireless router, got it connected to internet ok but when I activate the router's security settings, specifically hiding the SSID, the laptop loses connection to the router. I've been told I need to enter the SSID into the laptop manually, but haven't a clue how to do this. Can anyone point me in the right direction and tell me where I'm going wrong?
