Because they both may have the same name and or address. eg: They both might be 192.168.0.1 .... Also ensure DHCP is set to OFF, on both machines.

1.You will need a router with more than one port or a 4 or 5 port switch attached to the router.
2. Also you have to assign the 2nd computer to the router
3. this is done in the router itself
4.Usually by putting 192.168.0.1 in a browser ( Internet Explorer or Firefox)
and then going into the router setup Wizard for your router.
5. If you have a Linksys router or D-link these steps are very well documented at the site.
6. You will need to provide details about what devices you have to get further advice on your issue.

1 If you don't have a switch connected to the router or if your other devices are not on the Wireless allowed list in the router whoever has priority on the connection will knock the others device off that is xbox, laptops etc. Because bandwidth is being decreased and the connection is giving first come first serve priority.
You will need a switch or setup each wireless device in the router .
Instructions:
. power router off
2.connect all three computer you want to connect.
3. start computers one at a time completely
4. check router for status light per computer to see if device is seen by router.
5. open web page to see if each computer is online.
7. do ipconfig / release/renew if not connected

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Cant get two computers connected to the internet


There are to many ways try this,
Switch on the router.
Connect both pc's to the network.
NOTE Down The pc's IP Address.
Example:-
Pc1:- 192.168.1.20
Pc2:- 192.168.1.21.

If you want see pc2's hard disk on pc1.
Open the 'run' window and then type :-
\\192.168.1.21\c$
This will take some time.
It will ask you for your Pcname\Username & Password. Type them and click ok.
Your Done!
If you want to see pc1 on pc2 type:-
\\192.168.1.20\c$.

if fails
you can use remote destop application that is built-in in Windows based computers to share resources between 2 computers, and even totally control 1 remote computer:

How to hook laptop to home computer for internet


Easy! You need a wireless router. My recommendation is Linksys wireless-G (or wireless-N if the laptop supports it). Linksys routers are easy to configure and very durable. It'll run you $50-60 at any computer store (Walmart even has them)

Best of luck, and make sure you rate users who offer their time & expertise to you for free :)

be sure to check the big three.

ip address. go into command prompt and type "ipconfig/reset"

then "ipconfig/renew"

thats the main one.

then check your windows firewall settings. see if your browser is blocked.

the last one could be the router has to be reset. this one happend to me on a daily bassis with this same laptop. you can unplug and plug it then redo the connections.

So you want to remotely control your Desktop from your laptop from anywhere, correct?

Well only thing you need  is an internet connection, and you can access your desktop.

There are tons of software you can use to control your desktop remotely.

Here are some good ones:

Logmein free click that, that will link you to LogMein's free solution.

Logmein offers several solutions, the free is what I would use for you unless you wanted to pay.

Another very good one is:
RemotelyAnywhere click there, that is a very good software probably my favorite.

Those are the main 2 that you would like.

There are other ones more for more advanced users like:
