If the laptop has a wireless adaptor in the laptop then all you need is the Wireless Password (if the router has one, if not you're going to want to set up one or everybody in your friends neighbourhood will be able to get free internet) then all you need to do is go to Control Panel then Wireless Network Setup then follow the steps.

No tools are needed.

It's not too hard, but I'll help you as much as I can...

Hook up the computer manually through a cable to the router.

Open internet explorer and type in the url 192.168.1.1

Enter the default username / password. It would be given in the manual for the router.

Go to the Wireless Setup page of the router. Pick a good wireless network name - mine is CaptainJack, named after my betta fish. Anything will work for this option, be creative!

Enable WEP encryption, and enter a passphrase to generate shared keys.

Write down one of the keys it gives you (it may only give one). Keep this, you will need it to setup the laptop.

Save the settings on the router. Unplug it from the laptop.

Open the wireless setup wizard on the laptop. Connect to the WEP-encrypted network with the name you created. Enter the WEP key when prompted.

You should be setup and working! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask! Very Happy
