Wireless router is back up and running after password change...but now TiVo won't connect. I'm sure there's a simple fix. Please tell me what it is!

Changing wireless router password was predictably a mess, but got that fixed and now the TiVo isn't connected. Need help with something that surely is simple...just not to me.

I changed the password on my router last week so visiting family could use it without putting in that ridiculous default string. Predictably, trying to change it turned into a GIANT mess wherein I had to call tech support and pay them to help me change settings and get it working again. Good (I guess). Only now the TiVo is disconnected from the router because the router is currently set to WPA and the TiVo will only recognize WEP. I'm getting that WEP is less secure, but if I change the settings to WEP, will it alter other router settings and stop working again? Will I have to call and pay again for help (I REALLY can't do that)? When I try to change the router settings, I get this message
, so I haven't changed it for fear of it stopping working completely again. Do I really need to buy a special adapter
to get the TiVo connected again? This is really a foreign language to me (one in which the slightest alteration = disaster, apparently), though I consider myself fairly tech savvy. Halp!
