What does it say in the device manager? If you see a yellow question mark by a device you will need to load the driver for that device. You can point the driver update utility to the Restore CD for the PC.

Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding.
Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.
From the pop-up menu select "Enable."
This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.
Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.
After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.
Right-click the wireless icon again.
From the pull-up menu choose to view all available wireless networks in the area.
A window appears with all the networks your computer receives some sort of signal from.
Select the wireless network you want access to, type in the password (if required) and click "Connect." Momentarily the laptop computer connects to the Internet.
you should be able to, it depends on the laptop, the os, the wireless adapter, and the settings .
click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'
(or similar) and click 'enable'.
right click on the network in the bottom toolbar select open network sharing center
you should have the options to either connect or disconnect or set up a network connection
this will vary depending on your operating system
hope this helps
