replace your router with a wireless one. you will also need to ensure hat your laptop has got wireless on it, if not, you will obv need to get a wireless card to put in it.

what OS have you got?

I cannot replace router with wireless one as Internet service provider cannot provide wireless. Is there any way to connect to accesspoint from Ethernet router and from accesspoint I can connect to Laptop wireless.

My Laptop has got wireless in it.

"....Internet service provider cannot provide wireless"

That's not up to them. You would normally use a modem/router, unless you have an ethernet modem from a cable provider, in which case you just use a router without the built-in modem.

Your first post does not clearly explain your exact configuration and what equipment you have.
