Laptop Wireless Connection

My daughter-in-law would like to use her wireless enabled laptop through my router when she visits for a few days.
I am not sure what needs to be done to her laptop and/or my router settings.
Grateful for any advice, please.

Laptop Wireless Connection

Assuming your wireless network uses encryption (it should otherwise anyone could connect) then it should just be a case of entering the password on the laptop and connecting to your network.

Some routers have features like MAC address filtering, and if you have this specifically set this up then it might need changing. By unless you have the normally it would not be enabled.
