In very basic terms
Wireless started off with b then g, then n.
As it goes along the alfabet it gets better. So n is faster then b. Routers that are old and transmit the signal as either b or g can still be picked up by n cards as they are backward compatible.
If your card picked up a signal from the free hotspot then you just have to click on the signal icon and it should have an option to connect.
Most laptops come with wireless built in. Are you sure your laptop does not have wireless already ?
Now that you have a wireless card for your laptop you can add a wireless router to your home and then take the laptop to other places - such as backyard, lounge room etc and still have internet access.
Depending on the make and model of your current modem/router it could be wireless.

Not all wireless modem routers have aerials. What model number do you have. - Worth a look but my guess is it won't be wireless.
