How do I detect a wireless router from a desktop PC and connect to it?

Okay, my cousin has a PC which I recently built for him. The PC that I built for him has Windows 7.
Given that I connect a wireless adapter (PCI or USB), to the PC that I built for him, how do I detect the wireless connection from the router? Does it do it automatically?

Assiming your computer has a wifi card you just go into the internet settings and you should be able to search for a wifi connection.

Have you ever used a laptop's wireless connection? It'll work exactly the same on a desktop with a wireless adapter installed.
Click on the icon next to the clock, pick the WLAN you wish to connect to, enter the password (if applicable) and you should be good to go.

if your wifi adapter is installed correctly, its exactly the same as with a laptop

ie you will have a little network icon in the system tray.

if you installed it incorrectly, well, then you do not connect to anything
