    If you run the ipconfig /all on the laptop that *IS* connected to the router, do you see the subnet mask as being 255.255.255.0 (and not 255.255.0.0)?

    Okay, please go to Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network Connections
    In that window, all your NICs should be shown.

    Right-click on your wireless NIC and select Properties.
    Make sure the ones I show selected here are also selected for your NIC:

    Select Use the following IP address.

    IP address = an IP address available in the range of your router's DHCP addressing, not used by another device at the moment. (If you're not sure, look in your router configuration to find the range of IP addresses it assigns.)

    Subnet mask - 255.255.255.0

    Default gateway = The gateway address of your router (Look at the ipconfig /all from the connected laptop to get this - usually something like 192.168.1.1)

    For DNS server addresses, you can use Google's which are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

    Save all and reboot the system. See if you get connected with the wireless. Make sure the wireless is turned on, on the system - sometimes there is an F-key or Shift+F-key to toggle the wireless on and off.

    Can you go into your router settings and, using the mac address of your wireless NIC, assign a static IP to your machine - the same IP address that you put in the computer's NIC settings?

    Has this computer been recently infected with some sort of virus?

    Okay, before you run the scan, make sure the box is ticked to include Rootkits.
