For Windows 7:

1. On Control panel, click Network and Sharing Center
2. Click Connect to a Network
3. Look for your home wireless network
4. Click on it, and Connect
5. Enter the password (if, and I hope you did, set one up)
6. Check Connect Automatically


For Windows XP, it's more or less the same process though the names of the
commands might be slightly different

For a Mac, it will do it all for you (or so I am told).

If there are no networks, either you don't have a wireless router,
(doubtful) or the laptop doesn't have a wireless card or it's turned off.
Resolve as necessary.

Good luck!
