Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Sounds like you just need to power cycle your router and laptop. Turn off your laptop and pull the power on the router for a couple mins. Plug the router back in and wait till it is completed its boot cycle and then reboot your laptop. It will assign it a proper internal IP address at that time.

It is pretty strange that only one PC is not able to find and connect to the network. All I can do is give you a few suggestions to check the Network and the PC Settings.
-The SSID Broadcast and DHCP Server should be ON from the router, so that the network/ router would be visible to all the nearby machines and could assign IP automatically.
- Try to move the PC closer to the router and see if it can find the signal (the PC wi-fi card may not be power enough to receive the signals)
- Make sure that there are no obstacles such as concrete walls, metal cabinets between the router and PC. This reduces the signals and the PC fails to recognize them. Based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the router to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the router at the desk level, avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.
- Change the LAN settings of the PC to defaults.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Reset the router with both wires unplugged.
Plug one xbox in and turn it on, once it's connected connect the other the same way.
If you're trying to log in to xbox live using the same account on both xbox's you won't be able to.
