If you go into the setting on your router you need to enable wireless broadcast as it sounds like its not broadcasting.

Is the wireless adapter enabled in network connections? Newer laptops with built in adapters have a button abve keyboard to switch it on and off.

What is the model number of your laptop?

Trying to hook up older dell computer to wireless network (2wire) laptop has wireless card inserted, will not pick up signal from desk top connection.....this laptop did pickup signal from other network in...

Does the older Dell have a wireless radio?

If not, you'll have to use an ethernet cable to the 2wire router or buy a wireless USB card for about $35 or less for the old Dell. I'm assuming you are running XP SP2 or higher system.

I hooked up wireless router for laptop and an ipod work off the network,but i have another laptop that see's the network but does not connect.......the same laptop will connect to anyother...

The wireless card in this other laptop needs to be configured with this router's wireless settings. It is using the other wireless router's settings and therefore cannot connect to this wireless router..
Most wireless cards in laptops will allow you to setup different Profiles for different router's wireless settings. This will allow the laptop to connect to the different wireless routers by selecting the Profile for the wireless router you want to use.
I suggest you name the Profile by location which will make it easy to identify the correct wireless router.

Belkin N router reads everything but the computer.

If your router was working before, and suddenly stopped working, then you probably need to reset it.
Unplug the router from power, also unplug all network cables from it.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug power back in, followed by network cables.
Wait some more seconds while the router restarts.
Only the Power light and the Status light should be solid.
All others in use must be blinking, which means they are in use.

Try connecting to the internet with cable first, then try wireless.

It should work.

Wireless network problem

You can try deleting the wireless profile previously saved on you laptop and try to reconnect and make sure you got all your wireless settings and security with you { SSID, WEP or WPA/PSK}. If that doesnt work than try to access your router's page and change your wireless setting to OPEN Wireless and  for you to view your wireless connection and try to reconnect. If everything fails than you can try reconfigurig your router and reconnect each again for you to have your presario connected too. This wont be a prob at all . I can walk you through with it if you want to as i need more info re your pc and router setting.
Keep me posted.

You don't use a modem to connect with a wireless router. Connect an ethernet cable between the laptop and the router to ensure that both are working. If this gives you an internet connection then the commonest problem is an incorrect wireless key. Reset the key on the router then cut and paste it into the wireless network setup in the Control Panel. Wireless drivers are frequently updated and you should check for a newer driver.
