    What does "wont connect" mean? Can you ping the router? Can you ping the other networked computer? Do you have wireless security set up? How does the networking setup look like for the laptop (run ipconfig /all from command line)?

    reinstall the operating system

    Hi! I had the exact same problem, but then i reinstall my operating system (windows XP Home), and now it works. It's worth the try. :)

    By the way; Through the Network Neighborhood, my wired Desktop (XP-HOME edition) can access the wireless Laptop (XP-HOME edition), but when the wireless laptop tried to access the wired desktop, it's not accessible, given the long messeage No Permission.... for access. I've turned off all the Windows' firewall and disable McFee firewall from the Desktop, enabled File, Folder and Printer sharing, but nothing helped. Can anybody please help me setup the permission on the Desktop so that the Laptop could access its' shared file and folder.

    Also some time disablind and then enabling wireless connection may work for you.

    Do yo uhave insatalled any firewal or any other kind of security on your Wireless laptop if so then disable them and then try to connect to the router
