No expert, but until one comes along...

Control Panel, Network Connections, Set up a new connection.

I think you should just be able to plug the router into the wireless access point, and then configure the laptop to connect to the WAP. After that you need to tell the computer that it finds the internet by setting the gateway on the newtrok connection to the IP address of the router that can supplied by Wannadoo.

I take it that the router from Wannadoo is ethernet and not USB?
