Well I believe they have cable for internet.
Im the one with the wirless stuff.
I got a d-link
I currently use it where I am, and it works great.
So I just prey i can get a good signal.
So once I get this xbox adapter.
What will i require to get it working from their end?
Should i just be good to go?
After re-reading, it sounds like your router is the only one involved? If so, it should be a pretty easy setup, but may involve some settings changes. If you've never set up a wireless network, you may have to do a little reading up on the matter. The network cable coming from modem needs to go to the LAN port on your router. Your housemate's network cable can be plugged into one any of the switch ports. As long as your router is setup to automatically retrieve an IP, an internet connection should be made automatically.
I believe wireless is enabled on D-Links by default, but if not, you will need to configure the settings via the wired computer. The default UN and PW for D-Link should be "admin" and "" (blank) respectively...I don't recall the default IP for D-Link routers off hand, so you will have to google it if needed. Once you have the wireless adapter connected on your x-box, go to network settings and set your wireless settings. If you go to select a wireless network, you will see any wireless networks that are broadcasting an SSID (basically just a network name) in your immediate area. Select yours...should be D-Link or something of the sort. You should be connected at this point. After you've established a connection, I would highly recommend setting up wireless security...I'm sure there are guides available on the internet if you don't know how, but it's not too difficult.
You may see two wireless networks available if you have a dual band router (i.e. a router that supports both 802.11a and 802.11g). In this situation, G would probably be the best option since A may not give you enough signal strength.
Edit: oh yeah, and change your router PW from the default before you're done as well
