    Ummm, I think I know what you are asking. If you want to access the wireless network you need a wireless card. They sell them for both laptops & desktops.If you have a laptop &/or a desktop pc & don't want to get a wireless card... get a ethernet cable. Doesn't matter which one, make sure it's long enough to reach the back of the router. Plug it in & your connected to the internet.You cannot use the router as a wireless card, at most you could use it as a repeater on the network. You would still need a method of accessing it/network = wireless card &/or ethernet cable.
