    How is the network configured on the desktop? Run the command "ipconfig /all" and post the output here.

    When you secure the wireless network, then you have to change the network configuration on the wifi clients to match. It may be that your router's setup webpage is structured so that it is impossibe to secure the wireless without a wired connection.
