Theres a slide on switch there somewhere on the side or front of your laptop. Once you turn that on you will see an a little computer icon on the lower task bar of your desktop screen near where the time is shown. That is telling you that your wireless radio is on ready to accept and connect to any unsecured wireless network.
You should have a quick reference sheet that came with your laptop (if new) which usually shows you which and where the features are at (USB, wireless switch, etc) .
If you have Vista just right click that little icon and select "Connect to a network" and if theres any wireless network in range choose whichever network (SSID) you want to connect to
Or in Vista click on Help and Support and on search bar type " wireless set up" and it will instruct you on how to proceed.
You can buy a wireless router for your home to connect directly to your existing ISP modem (if you have one)
