Well the router needs to be connected to your modem. Basically, you run a patch (Ethernet) cable from your cable/dsl modem to the WAN/Internet port on the back of the router. If your router picks up your external IP from your provider, then you should be able to surf wireless on your laptop. If you want to surf wireless on your desktop as well, you'll probably need to buy a wireless card for it since most desktops don't come with that.
