there is not a wireless in the home. It is one that was already there. I tried to make mine a dummy wireless with same network as teh other but that did not work. I am plugged in the same network as it is wired in teh whole house and my office, but the wireless is a different network ideas?

Easiest thing would be to replace the orginal router for a wifi router...

Just use your router as a wireless access point. Don't plug the WAN interface into the network, just one of the LAN interfaces. Disable DHCP on your router. Done.
