Hi sylvia,

You must have a wireless router since there is a wireless indicator light on it. Also, most laptop computer has a built-in wireless adapter so you should be able to detect any wireless network without installing anything on your computer.

In order to connect wirelessly to your router, make sure that the wireless switch in your laptop is ON. Then it should ask for wireless encryption or WEP key, which can be found at the bottom of the router. If you have there 2Wire 2701HG-B, the wireless key is the 10-digit code enclosed by brackets just below the serial number.

You can also contact our AT&T eChat help desk for further assistance in connecting your laptop wirelessly. For members who are located in AL, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, NC, SC, & TN, here is the link for AT&T eChat:
