Hi,
I had a similar problem when I got my laptop. What I did was type 192.168.2.1 (yours might be different because we have a wifi router plugged into a normal router, so try 192.168.0.1 otherwise) into the internet URL address box. This takes me to the Wireless Router's domain page. I then click on 'Wireless' and then it asks me for a password, which I leave blank because I never set one up, and now I am in the Wireless settings menu. I then click 'Use as Access Point' and then 'Enable'. Then I close the browser.
I then check my Wireless connections on the laptop and can see the router there in the list. I double click this and also make sure the 'Automatically connect to this network' is enabled. I wait a few seconds for it to detect and connect.. "Local and Internet Access"!
I open the internet browser and I am on my Google homepage.

Your settings will be slightly different, but essentially the same.
Try that.
Good Luck!

Why won't my laptop connect wirelessly with my desktop?


If the network is now connected but you can't get on the Internet, then you need to check your internet setting in the Web browser. The web browser could be set up for modem, proxy, etc. You also have to make sure you are connecting to the wireless router, and not just creating a personal network to your other computer.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Second computer cannot connect to internet


Did your wireless network card install properly on the reformatted laptop? Can you see the network ID (SSID) in the list of available networks on the laptop? Perhaps you set up an encryption key that is saved into the old system that needs to be entered on the new.
