Buffalo wireless router

Can connect to internet when lap top is connected to wireless router. When I disoconnect to take laptop into another room, the "wireless" function of the the router does not work and I cannot connect to the internet. I did not hook this up (cable guy did) so not sure what step to take. It's just the "wireless" funtion that doesn't work, otherwise, I CAN get on-line no problems....

check to see if your wireless connection is on on your laptop and set to work with your router - check to see if your laptop's wireless signal is b/g/n - if it's only an "n" - and your router is a b/g - then you will need to purchase an "n" class router...
normally, routers do not "just work without issues" when you bring it home and plug it in - it should have come with a setup disk or instruction guide - have you completed the steps to connect?

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.

Trying to connect lap top

The WEP key is something you designate on your own router. IF you are trying to get into someone else's router you need to ask them for permission to have their WEP key. Otherwise you cant get in. If you forget your WEP key you can do a hard reset on the router to clear out the key.

Cannot get onto internet

disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.

the internet cable should be connected to the "Internet" or "WAN" port on the router. Your PC should be connected to one of the regular ports on the back of the router and your laptop can be connected just like the pc, or it can connect wirelessly.

Then you should be able to see the internet from your laptop.
