Please refer to question https://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_21520964.html.  I can't make my wireless network work despite following the instructions in this question. My desktop works fine but I can't make my laptop work wireless. Desktop has a physical connection.
What am I doing wrong?

Also can you please explain the following? This is from the question as well.

1) Change the admin password on the AP from the default
2) Change the SSID to something besides the default
3) Turn off broadcasting so your signal isn't broadcasted for all your neighbors to tap into
4) Enable MAC address filtering so you are required to register a device before you can use it on your network (the MAC address is the physical address of your NIC card and is printed on the card and can also be found by typing ipconfig /all from a command prompt.)
Enable some form of encryption (such as WPA) to make sure the data you send is not wide open for anyone in range to see so make sure your AP supports a good encryption

Thanks.
