If its a router you have,just a case of connecting with your ethernet cable.

That lappie has built-in Wireless LAN, but I am not too familiar with Vista wireless settings. Perhaps you could try the PCA Networking forum, on the left of this page.

is it by usb or by ethernet cable?
Is it an ADSL or DSL modem?
What is the name and model number of the modem?
