    First of all , you will have to configure wireless router or wireless access
    point into your small network.

    After installing this, you will have to secure your wireless network by using WIFI password.

    Do one thing ... open the WiFi router or wireless access point & by using
    mac address control list you can add MAC address of laptop & then try to connect
    by using WiFi.

    assuming you have a wireless router or access point and you have it configured with a name (SSID) and security

    click on the network icon in the tray near the clock

    it should show wireless connections including the SSID of you wireless - click on connect, enter the security key and you are on.

    If you are wanting to configure point to point wireless - ie between two laptops with an access point - this is a little more complicated, and in many respects pointless
