OK well I think it is better to set it up like this... Connect the Modem to the Phone Line, Connect the Modem to the Router with an Ethernet Cable, Use a CABLE connection from the Main PC to the Router. (Ya gonna ditch the USB WiFi) Set that Main PC connection up to connect to the internet from the Main PC, thru Router thru Modem.... Then from Slave, install the USB adapter in this PC, and use this to connect DIRECTLY to the WiFi Router... and thus to the internet. This way will give the best transfer rates, and reliability

although I don't support IP Pirates(if they can afford not to be). there is one trick that may help but not if the security on the router is strong as they can set it to only hand out 1 number. However if you know the IP( that is being handed out. then you can manually set the wireless adapter on the second system to have an IP that is +1( (instead of a DHCP setting)of the number you are given. make sure the gateway and subnet mask is exactly as is handed out to the first system.
you can easily view this info. from a command prompt and typing:ipconfig /all

hope this helps

There are wireless networking capabilities of the gateway that will prevent or allow specific MAC Addresses from connecting to the network. Go into the wireless settings and adjust the settings to accept the MAC address from your work computer. To find the MAC address from your computers network adapter go into a command prompt by typing cmd in the run box and typing "IPconfig /all" in the window. The MAC address is there it may be called Physical Address. It is always a 16 set of number and letter combinations divided by ":" between every 2 sets of number / letters. On your home desktop this same window will help you diagnose the problem. Your son's computer will help you with this, do this on his as well and compare the IP address with your home computer the address could be something like "192.168.1.?" the last number is going to be unique if the first three numbers match. If the IP address on your home computer doesn't match the first three octets "192.168.1" it will not get out through the gateway. If they don't match you can force it to be on the same network by setting up a static IP address by opening up the Control Panel / Networking icon and finding the icon for the network adapter that you are using and opening it up and clicking on "Properties" and clicking on IPv4 and clicking properties and clicking on Specify IP address and typing the first three octets of your son's computer and adding a fourth number that isn't "0" or "255". You can use any number between those two numbers except those numbers, and isn't the same as your son's IP Address or the Default Gateway which is the Linksys. The "Subnet Mask" will auto install but will be "". The default gateway and DNS server will be the IP address of the Linksys which most likely will be "". Click "Ok" on all the open dialog boxes and the computer should be able to get on the internet.

If you are hardly doesn't connect even your wireless station is been detected why not try to set your settings manually in your wireless card.

This is when you are behind a router.

Goto Network and sharing center. Click on Manage Wireless Network. Click on Adapter properties. Click Internet Protocol version 4. Click properties, then set the ipaddress of your laptop it doesn't have to be identical to any of your existing connection, your subnet, default gateway. And also input your IP DNS.

Cannot connect to the internet

open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.

Yes your computer based on your model number should be able to support a wireless router.

Now... you did not specify if this is or is not a second computer that is trying to access the router which is hooked up to another computer and modem. If you are trying to access it you will need a wireless nic adapter installed on the Dell. To access the router. Please comment on what the case may be in your situation.
