After you click connect, does it actually give you internet access?  Also, who owns the device that is supplying the connection?

If you get internet access and you own the device, then we just need to add security to it so it will prompt for a password.  If you get interent and dont' own the device, there is nothing you can really do.

If you don't get internet and you don't own the device, then that could be something like MAC address filtering where it determines whether or not you get access by a code in your wireless card.

If you don't get internet and you own the device, then we have to do some troubleshooting.  I would start with just a reboot of the router.  From there you would want to verify your settings on the router itself.

I would try updating the wireless card drivers for the computer that is unable to connect.  Is the machine detecting the right security?  Is the right security even available for this laptop?  By security I mean WEP, WAP, etc.
