I'm not familiar with your laptop and i don't want to insult your inteligence but have you got a wireless card on your laptop. If wifi is not built in then you will need a wifi card.

Just a shot in the dark: a) check to make sure the laptop is tuned to the same channel as the router. b) Make sure the SID is the same on both devices. c) If you have WEP and Shared-Key enabled, disable them (crawl before you can walk) and go from there d) maybe the drivers\router firmware needs updating. e) are you attempting to connect inside a "lead" box, literally speaking? d) google.com

Got so start--control panel---network connections
Make sure that your Wireless connection is enabled. If it is then right click on it and select properties.
Now do you have you router set up to be a DHCP server, or do you assign your IP's statically?
If it's DHCP make sure that under TCP/IP then properties, that the obtain and IP automatically is checked. If you assign your IP's staticalyy then make sure your subnet and gateway information are correct.
