Hi there, and welcome to
Connect the pc with a cable to any of the four LAN connections on the back of the router.
DO SET THE ADMIN password as the first thing you do.
goto -> administration -> management, fill out the router password and reenter it to confirm.
Give your network a name (SSID) so that you can find yours if there is more around you. Network name are called SSID, short for service set identifier
goto -> wireless -> basic wireless settings, Wireless Network Mode : set to mixed,
Wireless Network Name (SSID), set a name well known to you, NOT your address :-)
now set the Wireless Channel : to any other than channel 6, which is the one everybody use. Too much electrical noise might interfere with your transmitting.
Now, go to Wireless -> Wireless connection, to set the Encryption security settings.
Set security mode to WEP,
Set the Transmit key to your choice, if you know that you wireless card has 4 keys as well, I would use key 4.
Set WEP encryption to: 128 bit 26 hex digits.
Go down to key 4, and find combination of numbers and the letters a, b, c, d, e or f.
(ex. 414243444546474849404a4b4c) = 26 hex digits.
Now, before you leave, WRITE DOWN your SSID, your password and key 4 with your settings, as you need to set your wireless card with the same settings.
Start -> settings -> network and right click your wireless connection and click properties.
At the top, choose Wireless network, find your network, (your SSID) choose properties and set these settings as you wrote down from the router.
Now, remove the cable and logon wireless.
Do let me know how you are getting along.

SOURCE: adding wireless
for a dsl connection, what you need to do is check first the ip address of the router that you have or the mpdem that is given by your internet service provider. if it has an ip address of 192.168.1.X, then you need to change the ip address of the linksys router to 192.168.2.1 or 10.10.10.1. how to check the ip address? just connect your pc to the device and then open your command prompt, type "ipconfig" then click enter.. just look for the ip address.. also, if it doesn't work, then just set your modem to full bridge mode, your internet service provider will know about that.

is it a wireless computer or the wired computer?
I believe the main computer is online.
Check the settings on the router.
You will need to open the router set up page.
here you will see the settings of the router.
If you are trying to connect to the wireless
network then make sure that you are typing the
correct network key.
