Re: connection to laptop
If you have wireless capabilities on your laptop, then turn it on and right click the internet icon in your system tray (it should be crossed out to show that you have no connection), click on connect to network and it will show you all networks available. If your wireless router is up and running then this should show your network. Click on your network then click on connect. It will ask you for the password or the wpa key which will be the password that you generated for your network when you set up your wireless router. Type your password in then click ok, then you should be on the net. If your laptop does not have wireless capabilities then buy a wireless adapter and plug it into your usb port download the software that came with the wireless adapter then follow the same instructions above to access your wireless connection.

A Local Area Connection, or LAN, is generally a small home or office network used to link all the devices in the area. With the advent of wireless technologies, LAN networks are no longer limited to the amount of cords you own. Laptops can connect to wireless LAN easily with their built in wireless adapters. Connecting two laptops together over wireless LAN is also easy, but requires a few special steps to give the laptops access to each other.
1Connect both laptops to the wireless network you wish to use. Once connected, click the "Start" button and navigate to the "Network" menu.
2.Click the "Network and Sharing Center" link. Press the "View Computers and Devices" button. A list of devices currently on the network is displayed.
3.Check the list for the names of both laptops. If both laptops are displayed in the list of devices connected to the network, the devices are connected wirelessly to a LAN network.
The wireless switch is on the front edge of the laptop. With the lid closed, its position on the front edge is just under the right latch of the lid. Turn on by sliding the switch to the right momentarily. You should see Wireless LAN Enabled in large green letters appear briefly at the bottom of the screen. A single screen icon should appear in the desktop's Toolbar at the bottom right of the screen. If the icon doesn't appear, then likely the Wireless Network Connection is disabled. To enable do the following steps....
1. click start button at bottom right of screen
2. click Control Panel
3. in the Control Panel window, click Network Connections
4. right click Wireless Network Connection
5. on the drop-down menu click enable
If there is no Wireless Network Connection in the Control Panel's Network Connection, then the setting up of the Wireless Network Connection was skipped when the laptop was first unpacked and setup. In Control Panel, click on the Wireless Network Setup Wizard to setup the Wireless Network Connection.
There is a wireless card on it. You can use the Connect to option of your Start menu to search and connect to a wireless network connection in a public wi-fi hot spot such as starbucks. If you need to set up your home wireless network, you can use your own wireless router connected to your modem and set the network ID and password by connecting your laptop to it and open the web page with the URL of the default IP address of your wireless router and configure the settings. Use DHCP on your wireless router and your laptop TCP/IP configurations (Shown as Automatic IP address). Then you can use the connect to item in the start menu to connect to the network of your wireless router (according to the network ID you just configured). If there is a switch on your laptop to turn on wireless card, move it to turn on wireless. See the edge and the bottom of your laptop to check about that.

I assume you want to stop vista from automatically connecting to wireless networks other than yours.......try this:
Open Network and Sharing Center, click Manage wireless networks, click on your "home" network & make sure that Connect automatically when this network is in range is checked. Now do the same for any other connection that is listed but uncheck the Connect automatically when this network is in range.
Go to Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center
click Manage network connections under 'Tasks'
Right-click Wireless Network Connection
In the Wireless Network Connection Properties dialogue box, click the
Wireless Networks tab.
Select other wireless network like "Y5ZONE", "PCCW" and click Properties
Click Connection tab
Uncheck the box "Connect when this network is in range"
mostly the button is found on the left float side of your laptop 'IBM'. with two icons of a computer. please make sure that the button is on the side of the icon that shows a computer with weaves. so that your able to check the wireless access points you have in your range. Wireless Connection:
Start > Control Panel > network connection>
Show network connections. If there is an X on wireless connection
then connection is disabling and if no X then connection is enable.
make sure its enabled.
Right click on wireless network connection and click view available wireless networks.
You should see a list of available wireless networks
Then select the wireless network that you need to work on and click connect.
An icon in the lower right hand corner of your laptop should eventually appear stating that you are connected.
Then this will show you your wireless connection.
