Check Device Manager on the laptop (Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc, hitt Enter).

Do you see any yellow or red markings?

If so, those are indications that drivers need to be installed for those devices. Drivers for your system can be found at:

Most routers need to be set-up with a wired connection first. Connect your laptop to the routers yellow Ethernet ports and type in 192.168.1.1. Follow your set up instructions on setting up your wireless security settings and make sure you change your passwords. Also I tried searching for a WRT 110 and only found a WRT100. Those are the instructions that I got my information from.
