If the laptop is wireless enabled, then attach the router to the other PC, (if it has an ethernet connection) and set it up. Your laptop could then connect wirelessly to the router

What is the other PC?

You can add to it -

A LAN card for a cable connection OR

A Wirelees card for a wireless connection OR

A USB Wireless Adapter for a wireless connection.

The old computer could (and should) connect directly to the router, not to the laptop.

It's important to know about the older system to correctly recommend what's best.

"can i install software for internet on old pc..."

What software?

What is the old PC?

“Installed software 4 internet on it”

Are you using a USB modem on the laptop or an ASDL wireless modem router?

As there is no need to install any other software on the Dell 1501 to access the Internet

If the old pc is using Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, all you would need to install is a Lan card

as DieSse suggested

There should be no need to install any other software once the Lan card and driver is installed

connect the old pc to the router via Ethernet cable
