Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list. add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router. You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled. Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.
LAN port #1 on router <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop computer
LAN port #2 on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on laptop computer
If the router has built-in "wireless" capability, then use the desktop computer's connection to the router to "configure" the wireless adapter, i.e., pick an SSID, and establish a password, and then your laptop computer can use the SSID/password to connect "wirelessly" to the router.
ok then first take a ethernet cable and plug it to the output of the modem and into the input of of router(for the link sys this will be known as the port labeled internet. then use the software for the link-sys and give it a network then wireless connect your computers through that network.
From the laptop try pinging the router IP and then try to ping 220.127.116.11 or yahoo.com or google.com if you get replies the internet connection is fine and your router is connected to internet
As the issue is with 2 different devices it seems that issue is with router's internet connections, also connect the laptop with a cable and check the internet connection if that works fine issue is with the wireless security settings of the router
The user guide of your router is in the link below
Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.
When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.
1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.
