setting up wireless

We have the FIOS bundle, and I have NO idea how to set up the wireless connection on my desktop Dell to run XBox and my macbook. I can't figure out how to establish a network on the Dell, and to tell you the truth, I really need to have things dumbed down for me anymore, because I'm just not getting all the tech stuff.

 

Where to start?

 

Thanks from an old-timer.

Re: setting up wireless

You would set up the wireless on the router, not your dell. You would need to access your router from your dell, by going to a webpage and putting in 192.168.1.1. The user name admin and password blank. Then you will go to wireless settings and set it up on there. Make sure you setup a WAP security code too. If you don't it will keep your wireless open to everyone around you.
