So, your Dad has a wired router and your Mom a wireless? If your Mom has a wireless, do you know if anyone has ever set it up and used the wireless settings? If so, is it secured? You may have to put in the security key.
Do you see the icon in the lower right by your time that is for your wireless connections? It should say to Connect to Wireless, double click it and open and see if it shows connections in your area.
If so you need to chose your Moms and connect. If a box pops up asking for a code, you will need her security code and then connect.
These error messages, can you explain a little more when they occur.
