Re: want to add a second laptop to our router
If you want wired, 5 cable (network cable) just plug it into any of the open LAN port.
right click on "my netwokr" >>properties
right click on "Local Area Network">>properties
select Internet Protocol TCP/IP>>properties
select "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
select apply and OK, exit
if you ae going to use wireless, open the wireless setting in the control panel, follow the instruction and select the wireless network. enter the pass key. (if you have one.)

You need to install the driver for the router on your laptop in order for you to set up a network on your device. If it has been already installed, you need to refresh (reset) your router to be able to notice your laptop or you will have to manually add your laptop to your network.
For installing a wireless printer on Windows XP, wireless router is an essential device. Follow the recommended steps mentioned on the installation CD of the router, and set-up a wireless network. Since several computers or laptops will access the printer, it is recommended to connect the wireless printer to the main computer through the USB port. To begin the installation process on Windows XP, access the network setting in the Control Panel, and activate the file and printer sharing option in the LAN setting. This will allow the operating system to recognize the availability of a wireless printer. Now, click the Start button, go to Devices and Printers, select Add a Printer option. Click the second option- Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer. The computer will search for available printer and reflect it on the screen. Click Finish; and the printer is ready to begin the printing process.

Does the second laptop have wireless capability and is it enabled? If so, when you turn the computer on it should offer to connect as soon as it sees the wireless network. If you have WEP or WPA encryption enabled on the router, you will have to enter the passcode into your laptop.
Asuming you are knowledgable about hooking up broadband i will guess that you know for a fact the its a good connection on the broadband routers side and there is actuall internet access and the problem is with your laptop.
If so then make sure you have the right installs.
get into your start menu at the bottom left> hover over settings>click on network connections and wait for the window to open. Right click on " LOCAL AREA CONNECTION" and select properties.
The little box should open showing a scrollable menu and say " Local area connection Properties" at the top. Make sure in the list of installed Items, you have at least the TCP/IP internet protocal installed and add version 6.
Also you can try cycling the power to your internet broadband router. Hook up the laptop, turn it on and log in, If you have a router that you are using to branch off your broadband to several computers, then unplug, wait 30 seconds and polug back in and it should register. If you are plugging directly into the Broadband router, cycle the power on it the same way.
Also make sure you are plugged into the right port on the router:)
You must have a network set up, and you must enable file and printer sharing on the desktop. The laptop and the desktop should be in the same workgroup. Some firewalls will cause this problem. Start with the network setup wizard in Settings/Network.
