Are you running any encryption on the access point if so and you have not set up the wireless adapter on the laptop it will not connect no matter how strong the signal it is receiving

The gateway pc has the access point connected to it, you need to disable the encryption, i assume you dont have the key any more and need to set a new key, then connect to the access point with that key.
All this is set in the network properies on the access point then set the laptop connection by double clicking the network icon in the sys tray and click properties the configure.
