Also since you got it off ebay I am not sure if it is used or new but if its used it might have previous wireless settings like not to display the SSID or other security options.
Make sure you reset that bad boy first
He doesn't have to.. You can connect to a router that isn't broadcasting the SSID as long as you know the SSID.
Please completely reset your router.
Connect your computer to your router, type this into your web browser 192.168.0.1
You should be able to connect.
Username and password should show.
From here you should be able to set your desired SSID and protection. (wep, wpa, wpa2)
Don't forget to go to your routers administration page and change the username and password!
