Please -- please! -- help me troubleshoot a vexing wireless connectivity problem. Just to put this front and center: I am not knowledgeable about computers.

Hello, smart people. Thank you in advance for helping little old me.
Here's the deal:
I have a desktop (Mac Mini) that is connected -- wired -- to my modem and Airport Extreme. I have a PowerBook G4 that connects wirelessly to the network via the Airport Extreme. Until this afternoon when it suddenly stopped.
Some facts about this situation:
-- The PowerBook does view other networks (my neighbors') and will connect to them. It just doesn't seem to "see" my own network now.
--The Airport Extreme has a green light. The connection is working fine on the wired computer.
-- Prior to this problem I hadn't installed any software, done any updates, etc.
-- I have no other wireless devices around the house to check the wireless connection.
Could you please explain in plain and possibly babyish language, what steps I could take to troubleshoot this?
