I have an ADSL2 Router and as of now I connect to the Internet with a LAN cable. I want to access the Internet wirelessly. How do I do this? Do I create an access point to this existing router so that I can access the Internet wirelessly?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Without knowing exactly the make and model of router you have (and assuming it's one with wireless capabilities), it's impossible to provide specific instructions. Basically the way it works is you use a browser to access the router's built-in set-up page through its gateway address (usually something like http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.100.0) where you'll enable wireless connections and configure the features you want to use, like WEP or WPA/WPA2 encryption and related password/passphrase, etc.
How to do this is usually described in the manual, which may come in printed form or be on a CD that came with the router. You can probably also find a copy online at the manufacturer's website.
