This is most likely the problem. On your computer (not your sons :)), can you please do the following:
Launch your preferred Internet browser (i.e. Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc) and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 -- this should open your routers configuration page. I'm not sure what your router's default password is; do you know the password for your router? I can't find it online anywhere -- do you have your router's manual? Alternately, check the actual router itself, as it may be printed on there. If you can login, your wireless details (i.e. the WPA passphrase) should be under Wireless Network or Security.

Is there no option to show the passphrase, and thus type it manually into your son's laptop? Or, do you have any other machines connected wirelessly?
