Access Point

I am trying to make a second computer online in my home. I asked for a wireless router from a computer guy yesterday this is what they gave me. Do i hook this up to the second computer or the computer the internet is hooked to? I can't seem to make this work. The instructions are not user friendly. Is this a transmitter and do I need something more? I AM SO FRUSATRATED! PLEASE HELP

If it is an access point

you will need to connect it to your router. It should have software to install before it will work. If you don't have a router, then they sold you the wrong equipment.

In addition....

...your second computer should have, if not installed already, a "wireless receiving card" ( in simple language Happy ).
