So, when using one of the laptops (MS-1222) at home am not able to connect to the WiFi connection we have at home. The odd thing is that all family members are able to connect to the home network with their respective laptop or PC or even mobile!!

Another odd thing, is that it connects from other WiFi spots, but from home is impossible!

Also, used a WiFi USB dongle for a while when the problem persisted and just recently it stopped working!!

Tried to re-install the WiFi card drivers or reset the router or anything but to no avail!!

Would appreciate if anyone would solve this 'mystery'!!

It could be that your router is sending out a signal that your laptop is unable to recognize. Routers send out signal in either A/B/G/ or N. Most routers send out a backwards compatible signal but not all do. It is possible that the wireless card in the notebook just can't connect to your router.

Do you have Mac Filtering enabled on the Router?
If MAC filtering was enabled on the router, and your MAC address for your WLAN card isn't in the list, you wouldn't be able to connect.

Can you login to the router, backup your configuration to a file, and reset the router? Then re-setup the router to just change the default password and what not, and try connecting to it then?

Also, check to make sure your Wireless password is setup correctly, if you have one.
