How to connect a single computer to wireless router

I have just one laptop at home. I bought the Belkin G wireless router. How do I connect with just 1 computer? The instructions are for more than 1 computer. My laptop is a Dell E1505 and I do believe it has a wireless connection, I can connect to other WiFis. Do I still need to buy a card or USB adapter??
Any help would be appreciated!

Belkin router problems

Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password

Thanks for using Fixya.

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .

Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.

Connection problem

don't shout at me, but many of the older compaq laptops did not come with a wireless nic installed, and the ones that did sometimes did not support G let alone N.

If able you need to check that the Wireless NIC if installed/avaliable supports your wireless router or most likly the otherway round.

firstly I would try removing any USB wireless adapters that you may have in use from one of your other computers and try it in the compaq, if sucessful you know that it is not your setup of your home network at fault.
