Do you have security enabled on one of the lappy's,if only one you need to enter the security code (possibly WEP) into the other lappy.

You might get more help by placing this in the 'Networking' forum.

I think we need to know what equipment you are using to WiFi the laptops (ie mini-PCI card integrated in the laptop, USB dongle etc) and what speed settings you have (ie 802.11b or 802.11g).

Multiple access to the Internet should be possible so keep trying.
