I have a wired internet connected to my PC. If I try to connect the same wire to my laptop it does not work.
I also have Netgear Wireless 150 router. I want my Laptop to connect to WiFi through the router. How can I achieve this?
Goto your desktop and get the following info:
Open a cmd prompt (run "cmd"). Type "ipconfig". Find the IP4 Address, subnet mask & default gateway.

Open the network connections properties on the laptop and set the static ip4 properties to match the desktops.

Maybe a silly question, but is your NIC active? check this in Network & Sharing Center. I once had this same issue, having inadvertently deactivated the LAN connection, but leaving WiFi active.
