A wireless printer needs the WiFi password just like any other WiFi device such as Laptop or iPhone. The WiFi password or key is usually written on the underside of the router. If the printer as a little screen then you can take it to setup mode and select the WiFi signal and enter the WiFi key. After that your computer can seek the printer. You may want to run the install software again.
A different way to do it is run the install software on the PC with the USB connected between the printer and the PC. Follow the on screen instructions, similar to above and once done you can run the printer wirelessly.
To resolve this concern, first thing to do is to uninstall the device from device manager and then after that restart the computer and run the setup cd that came with it to reinstall the software and the device back to your computer....
First unplug your adapter and boot your computer. It wouldn;t hurt to reboot it once as well. This should clear out any settings. When it has fully booted up only then insert the adapter into a different usb port. If it recognizes it and works it can indicate a usb problem.
If it finds it but doesn't connect a adapter problem. You can uninstall it and reinstall the drivers and it might work. If not replace. If it does nothing then its died on you and your adapter needs to be replaced.
Most adapters and home network units (wifi routers etc) only last for 1-2 years before they act up or die on you. Very annoying and can be expensive. I have a stack of wifi routers where the wifi isn;t reliable but the rest works. And a drawer full of various wifi adapter that are detected but not connected and a few just plain dead ones. All of them seem to fail at about the same time after purchase.

try rolling back to the previous driver and also uninstalling and reinstalling the last driver update try this last in safe mode (try one thing at a time and test)
check if there's a firmware update for your wireless lynksys router.
although you got an odd problem... because you're mom laptop is fine so it's gotta be on your computer... mmmm.. still worth a try i think.
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.
