The connection between the modem/router and your PC is Ethernet, not your internet connection - your internet connection is DSL and is the ATM signal between the CO and your modem. That all said, if you already have the PC cabled, why do you want to go wireless? A wired connection is typically more stable and faster than most home wireless setups. If you do insist on going wireless, since your router supports it, just make sure it is turned on in the router and get yourself a wireless adapter as @Lee Taylor mentioned and you're good to go. – MaQleod Dec 3 '12 at 18:16
Is that router you linked to currently connected in your setup? or do you just have it lying around? – JoshP Dec 3 '12 at 18:18

Yes, this is possible.

You will need to buy either an internal wireless adapter or an external USB wireless adapter.
