Can see wireless network on one laptop, but not on another
I am able to connect with one laptop to the wireless network, but the other laptop is only able to get a strong signal on the same wireless network periodically. i think it may have something to do with the firewall settings, but the connection comes and goes without me actively changing any settings (or anything else), though the security software may be automatically updating at times.

A Local Area Connection, or LAN, is generally a small home or office network used to link all the devices in the area. With the advent of wireless technologies, LAN networks are no longer limited to the amount of cords you own. Laptops can connect to wireless LAN easily with their built in wireless adapters. Connecting two laptops together over wireless LAN is also easy, but requires a few special steps to give the laptops access to each other.
1Connect both laptops to the wireless network you wish to use. Once connected, click the "Start" button and navigate to the "Network" menu.
2.Click the "Network and Sharing Center" link. Press the "View Computers and Devices" button. A list of devices currently on the network is displayed.
3.Check the list for the names of both laptops. If both laptops are displayed in the list of devices connected to the network, the devices are connected wirelessly to a LAN network.
click on start >> go to control panel >> double click on network and internet connections >> right click on wireless network connection >> click on properties and go to wireless tab >> check the box at the top that says use windows utility >> click on ok and than right click on wireless network connection and click view available wireless networks. It will show you your network name. click and connect to your network.
First, try to connect your laptop hardwired to the router, if it works fine, its just the wireless configuration. Make sure you are using the correct wireless network key to connect to your wireless network. Go to the Control Panel > Network Connections > Right-click Wireless Network Connection > Properties > Wireless Networks Tab and delete all the names listed under Preferred Networks box. Click Ok. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection again > View Available Wireless Network > Choose your own network and click Connect. If it asks you to type the network key, type in your WEP or Wireless Network Key and press connect. That should do it.
Just configure the wireless settings your laptop. Go to Network Connections > Right-click on Wireless Network > Properties. Go to Wireless Network tab and look for Preferred Networks. Just remove all of them and click OK.
Now, On the Network Connections, right-click on Wireless Network Connection > View Available Wireless Networks. Connect to your own wireless network and enter your wireless network key if it tells you to type it. That should fix your wireless connection. Now if your wireless network is not showing, you need to change the wireless channel of your router by accessing the router's setup page using your wired computer.
Your wife's laptop is setup to connect to another wireless network. It must be set up now for the wireless network that you are trying to connect to. This means that your wife's laptop is trying to connect to the wireless network somewhere else. You need to let the laptop look for available wireless networks. It should be able to see your wireless network. It will then require you to enter the password that you have set in your Zyxel. If you don't know the password, call Zyxel.
are you connecting the laptop hard wired or wirelessly?
for wired connection, just plug the ethernet cable from the router to the laptop and it should work fine.
for the wireless connection, check on the wireless network connection. for xp, click on start> control panel> network connections> right click wireless network connection> then click on view available wireless network> then select your network.. for secure wireless connection, type the security key then click connect. :-)
