Is the wifi switched on, sometimes the laptops have a switch or is disabled in the bios.

surely you need a router to connect to and not just another wireless USB. i could be wrong.

I take it you can have the card in the PC to act like a router.
try a reboot with the card in it. sounds silly but it works.

there should be somewhere to setup a network name, only do this on the one so one, then go on the second one and do a search for networks should pick the other up.

usb on the pc is fine, and built in on the laptop is fine, like i say hunt the settings there should be an option to create a new wireless network, create one with whatever name you want on the PC, goto the laptop and do a search for new networks, should pick it up.
