While you have the ethernet cable unplugged, go to the network applet in the system tray (where the clock is). You should see an icon with two little computers. Left click once on that icon and a little menu will pop up, in that menu, click "Connect to a network". It should bring up a list of wireless networks avaiable to you. Find yours in the list (probably the one with the strongest signal) and double click on it. If you have any sort of wireless encryption, it will ask you for a key. Enter the key if present, and then hit OK. At this point, you should be connected.

Let me know if you have any problems and Welcome to Geeks-To-Go.
