Not sure what you want to do here. You can connect a desktop to the router with just a cat5 cable between the n.i.c. in your computer and a lan port on the router.

If you want to connect wirelessly (is that a word?), you will need a wireless N.I.C. in the computer. This is usually a pci card or a usb dongle.

There seem to be deals all of the time on wireless G routers, often $10 or less AR. Look in "Hot Deals" too (or maybe FW?) for 88¢ wireless N.I.C.s AR. Cat5 cables can be had online for a couple of bucks.
