    More info needed. Is the wireless network password protected? Please provide the router's model #.
    Let us know what you have already tried.

    First, all routers come with an installation CD that has a wizard to help setup the router.

    Now I think you're also having problems getting your laptop wireless working and connected. For that, you need to first open network Connections and ensure that the wireless card is enabled.

    Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Wireless Network Connection

    Right click on Wireless Network Connection and check if it is enabled. Once enabled, repost and we'll take it from there.

    Best,
