hi lisaken..
help is what we do ...
need some more information ,what is your operating system(xp or vista).?
do you have another pc and does it connect to the internet with the router ? or do you only have the laptop ?.Dave

hi again ...
that makes life easier (xp rather than vista)
ok ...have you installed the drivers for the wg 111 adaptor onto the laptop ?
drivers have to be installed first (before you plug in the wg 111 ).
when the adaptor is then plugged in it should start looking for a signal from the router, when it finds the router it will ask if you want to connect .
if you have security set up it will ask for a username or key in order to connect.
once connected you should be able to get web pages .

You have to configure the wireless setting on the wireless router click here, then configure the wireless adapter click here to match the setting on wireless router and connect to it.. Good luck...
