The signal indicator only tells you that you are connected to the router. You need to make sure that your router is connecting to the internet. go to it's configuration page by browsing to http://192.168.0.1 (note that this address is correct for many routers but not all, check the manual to be sure) find the tests or diagnostic section and run the connection test.

How do I connect the second computer to the internet ?


If your connecting a second wired computer , all you need to do is plug an ethernet cable on ethernet port of your computer and the other end should go to any of the available ports in the back of your router.

If you connecting a wireless computer. You just have to look for the wireless icon, its usually seen on the bottom right hand corner.
Right click on the wireless icon and click view available network,
Highlight your network name and connect.

Having a problem connecting


Configure the Router 1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

Experiencing error when connecting to wireless router


I've had this happen before when using a USB wireless device. Is the wireless on your system built in? Or do you connect it to a USB port? The external devices sometimes try to use their own software to configure wireless so you can shut it off and just use the Windows wireless tool. I assume you setup the wireless with a security key and entered that key into your system to try and connect? Let me know if any of that helps and rate the solution if it does!
