When you opened the box and switched the mac on for the first time, After you have had the dinky introduction video and the request for your language of choice, one of the first things it would have done is scanned for wireless networks and shown you all that it could see. It would then ask you to chose which one to use and (if necessary) type in its password.
That, normally, is all you do. From then on the mac logs in to the network automatically.
It would probably be a good idea if you could explain what happens or how you are trying to add the mac to the network, because normally it's a couple of mouse clicks and typing a password.

Just bought a new PC with Windows 7 and the netgear wireless-g wgr614 router says it's incompatable


are you trying to run CD on new computer ?
You can do it manually without CD.
First let me know, are you trying to install the router OR you are trying to add a new computer to the existing network.
If you are trying to add a new computer to the existing network then you don't need to install the router on the computer, you just need to connect to the network.

I have a belkin router set up in my home and I just purchased a 2nd laptop but I am unsure how to add this new laptp to the connector


If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

Lost my user name and need to add new computer


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network ?
Or your new computer will be connected to router with the cable.
If it is hard wired to the router and the router is working for the other computers then you don't need to change anything on the router.
If you are trying to connect to the wireless network then you should know the wireless settings of the router.

Apple computers will not connect wirelessly to sky broadband


Please open Finder, then go to Applications, and Utilies, then to Airport Utility (Only if you're using airport basestation), and before doing that, make sure Airport is turned on / enabled. If none of this works, this means either your laptop's airport unit / antenna is faulty, or the source of the internet connection. Also, one thing to try is under system preferences, find networks, and if none are there, or airport isn't there, add a new airport and that should help if all fails, if not good luck.
