CANNOT CONNECT LAPTOP (VISTA) TO WIRELESS NETWORK

I have been trying for days to connect my LAPTOP to my home network. I have a DYNAMODE BR-6004 W-G1 router. I have Desktop (XP) connected by cable to router LAN port. I have a DESKTOP (VISTA)- WIRELESS running on home network - no problem.
My laptop shows "CANNOT FIND ANY NETWORKS" When I try to set up network manually by entering SSID, SECURITY, ENCRYPTION TYPE & PASSPHRASE I get message that a network of that name already exists !!? When I try to connect it goes back to "CANNOT FIND ANY NETWORKS"
NOTE 1) My laptop used to connect to router before I added new Desktop (Vista) Help please before I have no hair left.

After hours & hours & hours of frustration I have just found out the cause of my problem. Somehow the wireless capability (which I did not know about) had got switched OFF. I switched it on again by holding down FN key and pressing F2 key. UGHHHhhh
