    Take a look at the long explanations for your Wireless Lan Cards online, or in the manual... There are some good explanations here. Or get a Networking for Dummies book at the library. We probably cannot help you based on the explanation you gave... which really indicates you would benefit from an indepth look at the install guide and user guide of your equipment... There are several aspects that have to be handled exactly right, so wait until you are no longer frustrated (we have all been there) then go back through things step by step... including My Network Places discussions on your computer, and online.
    Good luck.
    If you have specific questions, get back to us with the details on your connection, your wireless equipment brand and models, and your computers.
