Question about NetGear Computers & Internet
You connect the ISP modem to the main port on the Netgear router. You should now see a wireless network on the laptop.
Passwords / keys / paraphrases are located in the wireless part in the web admin to the router. Same thing for the user / SSID.

Connect the lan cable from the dsl modem into the first port on your netgear router ..
make sure your dsl modem is on PPPoE mode so that it autoconnects..
Now just connect to your wireless router via your pc interface..
*Do add a network key to your wireless network to avoid unwanted access

I would contact your hughes net, that is a satelite provider. That is a total different system, than dsl or cable. Hughes net should be able to walk you through the setup.

Get the same friend back out LOL :-)
First of all, look at the IP address the first computer has. That's done by pressing the Window symbol and "R". It opens up a box and you type CMD on the line and press OK. It opens up a new window and you type the command IPCONFIG and press enter. It will spit out a bunch of numbers, but the only 2 that matter is the first line telling you what address the PC has and the 3rd line telling you what the address of the Gateway is. Generally the Gateway is in the form of 192.168.2.1
That's the Belkin default but it may be something different. Now, the real question is what happens when you try to connect to the network from the new computer. Does it show your wireless network and is it secure? If it is, you're going to have to find the password. When you try to connect to the secure network, it will ask for a WEP or WPA key.
Go to the working computer, open Internet Explorer, and on the address bar type http://192.168.2.1 or whatever gateway address you got above. It will open up a new box with LOGIN in the upper right corner. If your "friend" didn't set a password, you'll get right in. If he did, remember the first line.
Outside of that, finding the security key should be easy enough to follow if you open this tutorial http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/33/p/386
A WEP key is 10 or 26 hexidecimal characters (0-9, A-F) not case sensitive. A WPA key can be anything from 8-63 characters and it is case sensitive so MyKey is different from mykey or any other variation.
Your last resort is to reset the router, especially if it's a DSL. You will have to do a lot of extra programming and it usually requires the original paperwork for addresses, login, and password to the inernet to set up.

You need to install a wireless card in computer 2.
Then install the wireless driver for this card.
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
