I must have done something wrong here. Have desktop and laptop and wireless router. Desktop is Enet via router , my choice.  Laptop wireless. SSID shown on router is (Using fake one here)... 6ABC2. When desktop is connected it shows Internet Access 6ABC2 2.
I must have screwed up trying to set up wireless on the desktop. My laptop has always been ablr to connect via the router wireless. I ASSUME laptop is looking for 6ABC2 and fails. Laptop uses IBM access connections which I love. Oh I use laptop at a hotspot on business, works fine.
