Smartphone wifi connection problem

Hiya

I've been having issues connecting my Samsung Galaxy S2 to my Sky wifi router.  It works just fine with roaming mobile internet and i can connect to other hotspots when out and about but my phone just won't connect to my sky router.  I've been told to change my security encryption from TKIP to AES.  I've tried this in the advanced wireless settings on my laptop but the settings just resets itself. 

 

How do i do this please?

When changing the settings on 192.168.0.1 are you applying the setting as it shouldn't revert back

sorry no idea what 192.168.0.1 is.  I've been trying to change it in the wireless networks advanced properties section. Maybe this is where i'm going wrong!
