The main problem on your setup is your router. This BEFSR41 doesn't have wi-fi or wireless capability. You can only go online on your laptop if you connect it hardwired to the router just like your desktop. You must purchase a wireless router if you want your laptop to work wirelessly
open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.
sometimes windows messes the whole network up when using the set up wizard, you need to go to the properties of your wireless cards and check on the TCP/IP line that the radio button that says obtain ip address automaticaly is ticked.
Go into the routers properties menu and check that DHCP is enabled and so allow the router to allocate ip addresses automatically, although you may need to do this via an rj45 cable and not wireless to begin with.
This is because your router is setting your pc at a different IP address than your original modem.
Make sure router is set to enable DHCP which gives out an automatic ip address and check your wireless card and network cards are set to obtain ip address automatically.
It may take a few re-starts to get on the internet as your systems will need to clear their previous DNS settings.
Also i assume you have set up the home network wizard (XP) as you are now using a router and not a direct modem.
Also try Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
