Yes you can!
Routers come in many different specifications. For example some are faster then others and some have a larger range then others.
I found this guide linked below which helped me to pick a router, have a read and decide what features you are looking for.

If you are just after wireless internet for personal web browsing like facebook etc then I would recommend heading to your local store and buying a mid priced wireless internet router. Should do the trick!

I need to know if my computer has usb 2.0 or usb 3.0 as i am wanting to buy a external hard drive.

I'm posting a pic to show you the difference.

The blue colored receptacles, labeled SS with a 3-legged symbol, are USB 3 (higher speed).
But if the plastic tab in the receptacle is not blue (white, gray, or black) then it is USB 2.

(in the pic the 4 bottom connectors are USB connectors, with the top two being USB 3 and the bottom two being USB 2)

What kind of battery in a inspiron 580s

If you mean the CMOS battery on the motherboard, they are pretty much standard in all PC desktops. You can go to any computer repair shop and buy one. Remove the existing battery and see what voltage it is or bring it along when you buy another one.

On my Dell Inspiron 580 it will no longer burn CD-R discs.

If it burns other discs just fine and not CD-R discs, I would suggest you try a few diferent brands of discs. That should alleviate your issue. If it doesn't, its probably a good idea if you just replace the drive completely. You have purchase one from a local electronics retailed for around $30.
