The wireless router is the access point where the signal is produced, this gets hooked to your cable/dsl modem to share the internet connection wirelessly, your laptop needs a little wireless card to be able to connect to that router, these are cheap and come in a variety of different types, the simplest is to go to Best Buy and pickup a USB wireless adapter and plug it in and put in the cd that comes with it and install it and then Windows should take care of the rest as long as your router is on and there is no password applied.

If you modem is not wireless then you will have to purchase a wireless router. If you have a wireless router or just bought one then you can follow my guide here for all the steps needed.

I have a westell adsl2t router and it is connected to my DI-624m wireless router and I just want to encrypt the connection to secure it.

open a browser from a computer that is connected to the router (preferably wired) and in the address bar, enter
the login is admin and the password is blank.
click WIRELESS on the left
you will then be on the wireless setup screen.
Enable the type of security you want, and the key or passphrase.
For instance, if you want something easy to remember, set the security to WEP and use your 10 digit phone number as the WEP key.
Change the SSID to something other than dlink while you're there.

That's all there is to it. Apply the changes and you're done!

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP

First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

Acer Aspire won't Connect Wirelessly Even with Full Strength

do you have security on your wireless network, password etc. like WEP, WPA, WP2 and the likes. that would be the first thing you need to check, second is the type of wireless card and router you are using, on the laptop you might have a wireless N router and a wireless N card on your laptop which might require higher security. you'll need a WPA2 - personal for the key. that you can configure your wireless router manufacturer. hit me back.

Belkin router with a laptop

1. First you need to configure your router with your laptop wired or physically connected to it.
2. Connect your modem to router's WAN/Internet port. Then your laptop will be connected to the one of the router's Ethernet port using an RJ45 or Ethernet cable.
3. You may run the setup cd that came with the router. Configure it with the Internet connection type that Bell Sympatico requires.
4. The setup cd will also require you to set up wireless in the router. Once it is done, disconnect your computer from the router.
5. Enable wifi in your laptop and select the wireless network that you set up and connect to it.

I've just purchased DKT-110 wireless G starter kit.

The Internet/WAN port on the router should be connected to your cable modem's internet port.
Then on your laptop, you should click on "View available wirless networks", your Router should show up there. click connect and you should be able to surf.
Note::The USB DWA 111 should be connected to your laptop and the drivers installed

assuming you have a wireless router, make sure you have purchased the correct one, as cable and dsl routers are different, as cable modems need to be connected to the router via a cable and dsl normally have a modem that can't be connected to a router, and you will require a modem/router.

You can only share a wireless connection when the line comes directly to the router and not through a pc, as the pc with the connection will have to always be on.
