You need a wireless router for you to use Wireless connection

I recommend DLINK, Belkin or Linksys router any of those will work.

you can still use wired connection because router has 4 ports for wired connection but if you prefer to use wireless then you need to buy USB wireless network adapter.

Linksys WPC54GS wireless adapter installation issue


There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:

1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.

Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!
