First Connect the Desktop with Netgear Router with the Ethernet cable. Open the Netgear GUI and configure a Wireless Network. Once its configured, switch On the WiFi switch from your Laptop and try to connect your Laptop. Make sure your laptop has an in-built Wifi adapter, if it doesn't then you would need to buy an USB based Wifi Adapter.

Also if you want to use the Internet with your Desktop PC without being connected with the Netgear Router then make sure it has Wireless connection capability.

Wireless connection with a wireless router (Netgear WNDR 4000) a pc and a laptop.


I assume you connect your printer to the desktop with the USB cable.
I assume the laptop is connected to the Wifi network.

First you need to setup the printer to connect to the wireless network. Follow the printer installation instructions to do that.
Next insert the install Disc into the laptop and follow the installation instructions. Use the network installation section.

The printer has a built-in server for printing.
If UPNP is enabled on the router then you should be able to browse the printer on the network.

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

on your computer try to reinstall the device driver for wireless. try to connect the ethernet cable directly to the computer. if you have internet access, then most likely your netgear router needs to be reconfigured. you need to contact your internet service provider or router manufacturer for the reconfiguration of your router. mostly likely the security settings of the router needs to be changed.
