Does this laptop have a modem? A network connector (RJ-45, looks like a big phone line connector)? Have you checked in device manager for network drivers or tcp/ip drivers. Usually if you are connecting to the internet by a network connection you ISP can walk you thru the setup.

If you are using dial-up heres the basics.

Call your ISP and have them help you.

Well, you could always read the user manual for it, and even download the drivers and install them. It does wonders to help setup a connection. The 3026 can use the 3025 manual for basic adapter info.

3026 drivers and utility download is here.

Now you will still need a wireless router of some kind. If you do not have a wireless router you are wasting your time trying to connect a wireless adapter to a regular modem or wired network router. For that you need something like this.
