Angry Stuck!!!!

I have an old Pentium II 350 MHz 512Ram Desktop computer. Nobody had wireless when this computer was purchased obviously. It is running Microsoft ME currently... But that wont be the case for long when I get the net running on it. Anyways I am trying to make network the old computer and my current computer together and the older computer doesn't read that it has been connected. This computer has been basically abused and has all sorts of problems with it. But I can't hook it up to the net to download anything usefull so I am stuck unless i get it to either network it to my current computer or get it to go on the net by itself.

I have 1 USB wireless receiver
I have a router
I have ethernet cables

I dont think I need anything else... Is there something I need to install or get?
IDK, I am stumped I've been playing around with it for too long and when i think im getting somewhere i come to a big brick wall.

Also, make sure things on the newer computer are shared, or else there is nothing for the older computer TO see.
