Install the adapter's software on the laptop (isn't it wireless already, most newish laptops are), plug in the adapter to a USB port. It should then pick up the wireless signal from your router and inform you that you are within range of a wireless network and offer you the option to connect to it. Choose to connect and enter your wireless network's security passphrase and you should then be able to connect.
