You're not even telling if you want to connect wired (via Ethernet) or wireless (via WiFi).
Anyway, your PC or laptop should recognise both automatically, with one exception. If it's a laptop and it's wireless, it could be that it has to be activated via some software or hardware switch (the same switch you use in airplanes to shut the wireless off must now be used to switch the wireless on). In that case, see the user manual.
And there's always the possibility of bad hardware and bad or not-installed drivers. So, if it's a laptop, does it work wirelessly at a public hotspot?
