You didn't specify if he has DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the softwarehooking up a lap top to a router - 1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

What operating system is on your computer?

Is your uncle using wireless security and if so what type?

I ve compaq c700 c772tu lap top...it does not have wifi software


You should be able to download drivers (the programs that make the hardware work) from Compaq from this site. You'll have to transfer them to the laptop via flash drive or other such device, and run each file needed individually, following any instructions. To be sure that you have drivers for everything installed, you can right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage," then go to "device manager" on the left pane, which will show you all the hardware that windows sees attached. Anything with a yellow exclamation mark (probably) needs a driver - double click on it to see more information.
