Question about Linksys (WI-FI LAPTOP KIT) 802.11b Wireless Access Point
You need to be a little clear on the spec of the laptop, operating system and the wireless router whether the PC is connected wirelessly or directly with a Ethernet cable. (sorry if this is embedded elsewhere - new to this forum).
If you are using a WEP key remove it temporarily and allow the laptop to find the network then see it if connects. There can sometimes be problems with the WEP key association / firmware of the router.
Also ensure that MAC Address filtering is turned off while trying to connect. Some laptops also have a wireless switch - ensure this is activated (sometimes a dedicated button, function key combo or even deactivated in the BIOS) There are so many things that need to be checked.

Bluetooth is not WiFi, they are two seperate technologies.
you need a Wireless adapter 802.11b/g for your laptop,
you would connect the two to each other using an adhoc connection,
If you had a wireless router for your internet you could connect directly to the router, (and then you would not have to have your main computer on for you to access the internet.
BTW if your Main machine is near your phone point (for internet connection) you would not need a wireless card for your pc, as you could connect via LAN cable to the wireless router (make sure you get one with lan ports)
