Default adding laptop to wireless network

hello,
i just got a new dell laptop with built in wireless internet. i have a
d-link wireless router on my home computer and another laptop connected
that the network. my new laptop reconizies this and shows that it gets
good reception from it, however it is "security-enabled" and will not
let me connect to my d-link wireless network. i was wondering if anyone
knows how i can get wireless internet to my new laptop? thanks! :)

Use the same security as the other laptop.

Whoever setup your security will know how to set up your other laptop

If the router doesn't show it, you have to reset the key on the network.
