Sony Vaio Laptop + Asus P5E3 Deluxe wifi prob

Specs: Windows XP, Windows 7, quad core, 2 gb ram

I have recently purchased a Sony Vaio Laptop with wifi support that is inbuilt or onboard. I already have a Asus P5E3 Deluxe motherboard at my home with ram 2 gb, 9800 gtx card and a quad core processor. Now, I connect this pc with a broadband connection at home running 1mbps speed. This motherboard also has a wifi onboard connection. What I am trying to do is setup this wifi connection so that my laptop can also connect to the internet wirelessly. For this I have installed the wifi driver of Asus (something called Asus WiFi-AP @n software) and configured it with giving it a proper connection name and a password. I have successfully done all the wifi network setup wizard on the pc and it is working well. Now the problem is that, my laptop is able to find this wifi connection but after sometime it gives an error saying to troubleshoot network connection and the wifi network disappears from the laptop and again i have to search for this wifi network and the cycle continues. Similarly, when I am trying to connect my Nokia e90 mobile phone with the pc via wifi, my phone is able to pickup the wifi connection and sometimes it is able to connect to the internet and I am also able to browse different websites but sometimes it gives me a gateway time out error. So, can anyone tell me how can i connect my sony vaio laptop to the internet wirelessly by using the Asus P5E3 Deluxe WiFi-AP @n connection? Also if possible, then please let me know how to connect my phone as well, which is a secondary question. Thank you in advance.

Note that - The operating system that I am using on my pc with Asus P5E3 Deluxe motherboard is having Windows XP installed on it and on the sony vaio laptop windows 7 is installed.

If you want the absolute truth, there's an easier way to do it that won't cost you more than about $50.00 USD.

Buy a wireless SOHO Router and connect and configure it. Create a WLAN on it (secured with WPA) and then connect to that with your laptop, and plug into one of the LAN ports with your desktop.

The added advantage to doing this is, you don't need your PC on to surf with your laptop.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Thanks for the reply

But as you can see, I am already having a wifi onboard on the asus motherboard then why should i invest in buying a new router. Well, I already knew that if I purchased a new router with wireless inbuilt, then I could have easily connected my laptop wirelessly or even some 3-4 pc's. What I want to know is how can i connect my sony vaio laptop with the asus's motherboard wifi connection to get internet connection on the laptop. Thanks for any information for my specific querrie in advance.
