Re: lap top problem
Wireless network adapters require an associated wireless receiver (such as a wireless router or wireless access point) to recieve the radio signals from the adapter and eventually route them to a wire and in you case it would be the wire providing internet services to your desktop computer. If there is no wireless receiver there is no device to convert the radio communications of the wireless adapter and rout those signals to the internet.

Connecting laptop/computer to wireless router If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem and Internet then -To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
check your laptop if their is button of wireless being switch on or in the keyboard. Also check your laptop is the wireless driver properly installed. The reason why you cannot connect due to none visibility of the network. Could you also set an IP address of your laptop if you have set your wired connection into IP. Hope it helps thanks.
If you have installed the wireless card driver in your laptop then you need to configure this wireless card with 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, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.
Turn on the wireless switch ON in the laptop if it has one. Check to make sure the wireless adapter appears in the Device Manager. Then check the wireless network connections on you computer - it should pick-up all surrounding wireless SSID's. Locate yours and enter the security keys for your modem when prompted. Make sure it is the correct number to get a connection. Also, check your modem settings from one of the desktop computers - there should be a web page for it by using your Internet browser, to verify that its' wireless transmitter is on.
If you are running with XP try switching the unit on and pressing F8 while the computer is booting up
This should put you into Safe Mode
If that works go to Start , Accessories, System Tools ,System Restore and if the shop did the right thing when they built it you will have the System Restore function running
Ask the machine to do a System Restore and it should give you a number of dates to restore to, pick on that is a few days before the last update and let it roll
It has nothing to do with your having signed on with another computer.
It has to do with what kind of internet connection you have - wired or wireless, cable, dsl or dialup. But it's not a "this is what's wrong, so do this" problem, it's a "answer this question, and I'll know the next question to ask you - for about 15 questions" problem. You need live help. The laptop or internet sections of answers.yahoo.com might be an easier place to get help with this.
One thing you can try, since you're paying for it anyway, is to call your provider's tech support number and see if they can get you fixed up.
