BSNL Broadband WIFI setup Teracom modem

 Tushar -

I have Windows Vista operating system for my home PC. I recently got the type II modem - the model is Teracom. While installing the wireless LAN drivers from the CD I got an error. However, my ethernet port is working and am able to connect to Internet through that.

But I need to set up WiFi for my laptop so that I can access the net without keeping my home PC on.

I have searched in the net but could not get a proper reply. someone help
