confirm that both computers can connect to the internet at the same time if the laptop is using wireless.
did you follow the tutorial I provided?
Is windows updated on both computers?
Perhaps when the laptop switches to wireless, it becomes a 'public' network. Go here: Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center
You will see a computer and monitor with your computer name under it. Right below that it will say 'network', and tell you if you have a home or public network. Click it and switch to HOME.
Did you try this: Open the HomeGroup troubleshooter
- worked for me last time I had trouble.
