Please elaborate on your method.
Now you are confusing me.

Are your computers connected to the same network. If not there is nothing you can do

I'm sorry. I should have written "without inserting any LAN cable in my laptop"

Yes, my pc and laptop are connected to the same network. My pc is connected to a wifi modem through a lan cable and my laptop connects to the modem to access the internet through wifi.

Also you have to first go into Extras then Options and accept Lan connections,

Normally if you do not have a registered version of TeamViewer it will only allow you to connect for half an hour, But if you connect with your Lan you have an unlimited time to stay connected.
Thanks a lot! I'll try it out tomorrow and inform you Connecting pc and laptop through network? Connecting pc and laptop through network?

Typically when you connect your computer to a router whether it is with a Lan cable or WiFi they will be on the same subnet and TeamViewer and Remote Desktop will be able to connect on the local network IP.

EG:
192.168.0.1

If you set your WiFi as a Guest WiFi in the settings of the router you might not be able to connect to the other computers if you set it up to separate the networks.

192.168.22.1
