Go to Start > Connect To > Show all connections

Right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and click on Properties

In the General tab in window that pops up, scroll down in the box below "This connection uses the following items:"

Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and the Properties

On the both the General and Alternate Configuration tabs in the new window, make sure the automatic options are checked.

Do this on both laptops.

Can you connect your laptop to the internet when you connect it via Ethernet cable?
