Ace, what operating system are you using for the wireless? That would tell you which forum to post in. What's the exact model of that router?

Some things to check: make sure that wireless is enabled on the router. Make sure the system can "see" the router by name in the list of available networks. Try and connect to the router and post any error messages. If it appears to connect, get the details of the IP configuration (IP address, gateway, subnet mask, DNS, etc.) and post them here.
