This is correct. It has to do with your router. Does it ask you for a password when trying to connect to the wireless network? If yes then you have set up or the router has enabled wireless encryption. You need to know how to access your router's configuration page and get the password there. Then you can use that to connect with your laptop.

Also changing the channel on the wireless router will also help boost your connection. I suggest get the manual or contact the router's manufacturer to learn how to access the configuration page of this device.

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

SOURCE: New Laptop will not connect with wireless

try setting it on wep with 128bit encryption.. the new certificate programs doesnt do well with out it and aswell as it doesnt perform well on wap settings so a user-certificate based authentication would be optimal for the windows 7 and most secure aswell youtube, google, and your routers websites will help you get a firm understanding of how it works
