New Wifi connection

I just got a new laptop so set up the Netgear wireless modem router, got the laptop and the computer connected but when i move the Netgear box to the landline phone socket i get no connection .
I set it all up with the ethernet cable in then and it all works perfect but when i take the etherent cable out i get no connection at all. It only works with the etherent cable still in the netgear box .
I know i must be doing something wrong but dont know what.
Thanks very much.

Thanks for your help.

Grreat, the second link was only a 'safety-belt' anyway! Cheers.
