No, you need to get a wireless router or access point for that. I would get a router as it provides extra security for your computers.

How do I ad another computer to my router

Since you are adding one, it means you do have a computer that is already working with this router. It means you router is been configured already. So if you need to add another one, its very simple.

For wired connection:
-just get an Ethernet cable long enough to reach your computer then connect the ends on the available Ethernet port located on the back of the router and the other end should be connected on the Ethernet port on your computer.

For wireless connection:
Look for a wireless icon on the bottom part of your screen near the clock. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 just click it and will show you the wireless networks that are available. For Windows XP, right click the icon and select "View available wirleess networks". As soon as you see the list of wireless networks, select yours and click "Connect". If your network is secure type the security key that been setup on the wireless router, if not secured it should connect immediately.

I cant get my laptop conected to the internet, does it have wireless?

Yes it does have wirless. If you wireless isn't appearing in the main window screen via the taskbar, then you either have your wirleess card disabled. You can enabled this in the control panel in your network device managment and if you see the wireless card, see if it is enable, if it is disabled, right click and click enable. If you don't see one, then your wireless card is damaged, and will need to be replaced.

Wirleess solutions

If you are already connected to the network could you check what is the IP address that you are getting on your laptop?

You can do this,
click Start > Run > type cmd and click Open.

On the black screen type ipconfig /all and hit enter.
then look for the IP address and default gateway for the wireless network connection. One we have this information we will know if we are really connected to the wireless.
