Unable to recognize wireless network router on wireless lapt

Specs: Windows XP
One moment the laptop was using the wireless connection from the router in our house and the next it lost internet access and then wasn't able to recognize the SSID or connection at all on the available wireless connections. We have reset the router and restarted the laptop countless times yet the only internet access we have is on the computer the router is hooked up to. The wireless connection works neither on the laptop nor the Wii, both previously works merely hours ago and with no problems until now. We assume there is an issue with the router itself, whether it be a loose ethernet cord (which only faintly can be moved in its place). It's almost as if the router is stopping them (Wii, and laptop) from having access. When we explore the wireless internet properties on the laptop, it shows the wireless connection, yet only there and doesn't give access to it. Could it be the router, or could the company have restricted WiFi only to the computer it is hooked up to?

I don't think the company did anything to limit the wifi. I would look in the event viewer first. I would also disconnect the WII & try the laptop alone.
