Hi,
We have recently purchased a panasonic wireless projector and this is working fine and we are able to connect to our laptops. But as soon projector connects to our laptop, we cannot access our network where network is connected via another access point.
Is there any way we can connect our network and projector at the same time

we connected the projector with two laptops simultaneously but when we tried to connect those laptop to internet we lost our connection to projector and when we tried to connect it back to projector internet connection was lost.we have to connect laptop to internet as well as projector at same time and we want to do it wirelessly only.

I don't know of any wireless adapters that can make more than 1 connection at a time without also utilizing a 2nd interface (e.g. while using ICS).

I'm not saying (yet) that you're not going to find a way to connect to both simultaneously, but you're not going to do it completely wirelessly while connecting directly to the projector and having only 1 wireless adapter in play.
One example of how it *might* be done would be to connect to your LAN with the wireless of one laptop with ICS enabled, then connect to another laptop with a cat5 crossover cable (at least 30cm long), and that other laptop then connects to the projector (its internet connection would be through the cat5 cable via ICS provided by the first laptop). Obviously the projector will need to be using a channel at least 5 away from your LAN's wireless (channels 1, 6 and 11 should be utilized with 802.11b/g; in Japan I would say 1, 6, 11 and 14, since their 14 has a larger offset than all other channels), to prevent interference.

Which projector do you have, by the way?
