Problem connecting My latop to my Lan Network

peter
I have a 5 computer network in my office. I bought a new computer (Dell Inspiron 6400) with an internal wireless card. I bought an wireless router as well. I'm able to connect to the internet in my laptop but I can not connect to my lan Network. I used the network wizard setup like the other computers and it doesnt work. can anybody help me?

best bet is to do it manualy. First, look in the router to see if the wireless is on the same subnet as the wired connection, or if it is creating its own network for the wireless. Next open properties on My Computer, Computer Name tab, Change button. Compare info with another computer to add this one to the same workgroup. Now, add a shared folder besides the default. OR browse through All networks, Windows Network, Workgroup Name. If you are on VIsta I have no clue, if you are in a Domaine, then us the Change button join the computer to a domaine instead of a workgroup.
