using a laptop and wireless connection

Hi, hope someone can help!

I have recently set up a wireless connection using a Belkin Router and network adapter on my pc. I would like to purchase a laptop to connect to the same internet server (AOL) and am not sure how to do this or how difficult it is - all I know is that I need a laptop which already has wifi and that this should pick up on the signal from my router - but will it do this automatically or do I have to set it up? The bit that confuses me is how I get it to connect to the same AOL connection. I would also like to use the laptop to connect to the internet in other locations (eg from my parents router) that have a wireless connection and again am unsure how this works, or if it is possible. Sorry to be so dumb but I am new to all this and would appreciate a nice simple answer!!!
