Please help

I have built my pc a few months ago and just been activated to sky broadband. can someone tell me how to set up a wireless connection. I have tried the wireless wizard and got to the part where i click on save (for usb flash drive) the cursor changes to eggtimer and stays like for a very long time. is there anything i need to configure before i use this wizard

This is the only pc in the house, pc upstairs, router downstairs. pc running xp home sp2

help would be very much appreciated as I have lost a couple of days surf time
