Your computer doesn't provide the wireless network, that's done by a wireless router. You may not have one of these already.
Your question is posted under the "Westell 6100 modem" heading. If this is the modem you have, you do not have wireless capability right now. That device is a modem only, providing just a single wired output for one computer.
To set up a wireless network, you need to purchase a wired/wireless router. There are many to choose from, available at retail stores like Target, Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc. Typical price is around $40 to $50.
Full instructions on installing the router and setting up a wireless network will come with your router, but here are the generic steps.
First, connect the router. There's a connector (usually colored yellow, and labeled "ethernet" or "wan") where the cable from your modem connects. That cable is the one that's now connected to your computer's network jack; unlpug it from the computer and connect it to the router. Connect your computer to one of the wired network jacks on the router. There are 4 of them on most routers, usually colored blue. Labels can vary widely; sometimes they are just numbered, other times they say "computer" or "lan". Most routers include a cable so you can make the new connection. Plug in the router's power adapter and you're done.
A setup CD comes with every one of these things. Put the CD in your computer, run the setup program and just follow the steps. It's usually an automatic process.
To keep your neighbors from freeloading, make sure you enable wireless network security. Usually this is part of the setup, but it's sometimes one of the optional steps. There are several options. Use WPA or WPA2 security and a "strong" key (at least 8 characters with a mix of upper and lower-case letters, numbers and special character) that's unlikely to be guessed, and you'll be safe.
Full details will come with your router. Don't be scared off by the process. It's actually pretty simple. And if you have problems just post a follow-up with the brand and model of router you get. There's plenty more help available here to get you going if you need it.
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
