In this example of my setup at home I have a wireless router/modem which my desktop unit is hard wired to, ethernet connected in other words.
When I am working on any wireless laptops I then connect to the router by searching for wireless access points and input the passord once done so.
Have you tried doing it this way, remember you must have the wireless turned on on the laptop.

another thing that may happen is you may have an IP address conflict simply changing 1 of the computers IP's would help solve this if it is this causing it. So changing 1 IP to 192.168.1.3 may help. Of course it may be nothing to do with this but the more things you can eliminate the less things it could be.
Open network and sharing
then click change adapter settings
then right click the network card and select properties from the menu
A little window will then pop up and you should then highlight Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPV4)
Now click properties
Check use the following IP address: box and fill in the. You will need to check the addresses for your set up.
IP ADDRESS: 192.168.1.3
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.1.0
It's worth a try.
Hope that's of some help
