Messed up connection with setup wizard

Please bear with me because I'm not good with computers.

I was trying to switch my wireless printer to a new network connection name (we moved), and made the mistake of creating a network on the Wireless Network Setup Wizard with the exact same name as our existing wireless connection.

Since I did this, I can't connect to my wireless network (my roommate's laptop connects fine). It will say that the signal strength is excellent, but then it has limited or no connectivity. When I try to repair it, it stalls at the "renewing IP address". I have my IP settings set for automatic configuration under "properties" in my wireless network adapter (which is, in case this matters, an Atheros AR5007EG)

I have no idea how to delete this twin network I created (when I go back to the setup wizard it doesn't give me that option, only to create a new network or add computers to my existing network).

Please, please help!

I ran ipconfig/ all and have no idea what it means but it says that my Node type is Broadcast, that neither IP Routing nor WINS Proxy are enabled, that my Media State for ethernet adaptor wireless connection is disconnected, and that my physical address for ethernet adapter for wireless is 00-21-63-B5-39-0F.

There was no reason to run the wizard again. The router doesn't know that you moved.

If ipconfig /all says that the media is disconnected, then it's not getting an IP address. Make sure the card is enabled in the device manager. If encryption is enabled, make sure that you enter the key.
