If my pc is not wireless and I want to set this up for my daughter to get internet access, what else do I need?

I have an older PC (not wireless) and 2 wireless laptops. I have a new wireless router. Our internet comes from the cable company. The box has an ethernet cord, and the cable cord with a USB port. What do I need to make this work?

    What wireless router do you have? Connect the cable modem to the WAN port of the wireless router via an ethernet cable. If you have the extreme or any other router besides the express then you can hardwire the router into the computer's ethernet jack via an ethernet cable. Connect the ethernet port of the computer to a LAN port on the wireless router. If you do not have an RJ-45 (Ethernet port) then you may want to invest in a NIC card (Network Interface Card) for the computer.
