Question about Routers
I installed a wireless router on the computer in the hose now im trying to get my HP pavilion slimline s7712npc online in the garage but its not working.
If your computer is not able to connect through wireless network firstly you just switched off the wireless button. There is a key button above the number key which looks like a Tower. If you have tried all the thing then try to reset the router, reinstalling the router, if then also it was not connected then check your network network port. Assurance Wireless

A couple of issues and questions
First generally a wireless router in installed onto a network either to the ISP's modem or to another router that is connected to an ISP's modem it is not connected on the wan side to a computer (unless that computer is acting as a firewall or proxy server to the internet). Computers are generally connected with a wire to the (optional) switch portion of a wireless router or wireless connection.
Have you tried testing with a computer wired to the router to assure internet access is possible without worrying about wireless issues?
If you are considering encrypting the wireless router did you test it unencrypted first to assure the unencrypted radio transmissions work?
Is the wireless communication encrypted for other computers you own and possibly not for the HP you are now trying to connect?
Are you sure the distance between the wireless router and the garage is not an issue. Perhaps you could test and configure the connection in the room with the router and when it is working move it to the garage.
According to the product specs for the HP Pavilion it has built in wireless B & G you did not include the router manufacturer and model does it operate on the either wireless B or G?
