Default Laptop Problem

I'v got a wirless network set up and my laptop connects to it fine, but when I try to add it to the actual network (as in file sharing network) I have a problem.

As soon as I launch the network set up wizard I get this :

"Cannot complete the network setup wizard.

The wizard detected that this computer belongs to a domain, therefore you cannot use this wizard to set up a network".

The laptop already has a vpn connection set up, could this be the problem?

Please help me as I can't print from the laptop wirlessley. The printer doesn't have a print server but is shared from my host computer which therefore acts as a server. Printing wirlessley from my other computer works fine so therefore its not a router problem just a laptop one.
