New pc, with wirless adapter,

Hi I just bought a PC from Best Buy last night, its a compaq presario, and a dynex wireless adapter.

This might sound stupid but how do I connect my current optimum online internet connection to this new computer with the wireless adapter.

I plugged it in but its not picking up a internet signal from main computer in the other room.

How do i get the wirless router to work? thanks Mark

Wireless Card will not fit in slot


First, make sure that the type of card that you bought is compatible with the slot. Your presario can use Type I or II standard PC or PCMCIA cards. If the linksys adapter that you bought is not a PC/PCMCIA card, rather an ExpressCard, it really won't fit.
