If the Linksys is not yet configured use the desktop to put the CD in and follow instructions to add the Linksys Router to your existing network setup.
Once inside there are a few more steps to getting a desktop PC to see & network with a laptop PC within a router/wireless environment. Once the Linksys is setup you may want to repost something to get the computers talking to each other.

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD. Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
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.
First of all u should ensure that DHCP server is configured for your required number of computers. this problem seems that you have less clients configured in your DHCP server, existing in router configuration.
There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud
please check the wireless settings for your laptop.
using your laptop,
first, go to command prompt and type services.msc
second, check WLAN if it was set to automatic. if not click stop and double click WLAN and set it to automatic before clicking start.
using desktop pc that is connected to the router
first, access the modem software of your d-link router
second, goto wirelesss settings
third, set channel to maximum level
fourth, apply settings

What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).
A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including http://www.hotspotsystem.com/ who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.
