If you have connectivity via wire...then you need examine your wireless setup...from drivers to setup...to find out why it won't work.

Any error messages onscreen when your wireless efforts fail?

Maybe the wireless adapter is bad. That has happened to me.

Modem and router you either use one or the other not both. Are your 2 laptops WinXP or something else?

Surely your ISP has supplied you with an installation disc to set everything up?

It becomes confusing because there are combination devices which can combine both an ADSL modem and a router in the one case as well as devices which can combine an ADSL modem, a router and a switch all in the one case!
What is the difference between a modem and a router. A reasonable answer is given here -

It's not confusing at all...the two devices perform different functions...and work together if properly connected.

A modem carries the signal from the ISP's connection...to either a router or directly to the computer. A modem can connect only 1 computer directly.

A router is a device which obtains the signal from the modem...and makes it possible for multiple distribution to more than 1 computer and facilitates computer networking. A router also provides a layer of security that is lacking when just using a modem for the Internet connection to the system. I don't know much about modem-routers but I assume that they also provide that additional protection.

Many of us employ both routers and modems with our systems.

acquiring network address

Try removing all your wireless network profile including the one you are currently using then connect again manually by choosing from the list of available networks to your home SSID. Make sure the security encryption(WPA/WPA2) matches the router and your laptop's wifi card. You may need to try changing your wireless mode to b/g - b/g/n mode or mix mode to check on the difference.
