Default DSL on the Laptop

I think this is where this is supposed to go!

I recently bought a used laptop (Compaq Presario 1200). I have DSL internet service. I noticed that the DSL router's yellow cable (which plugs into my desktop's ethernet hole) doesn't have a plug-in on the back of my new laptop. There is, however, a little square-shaped box. I looked on a newer laptop I also have (that no longer works) and it didn't have an ethernet hole like the desktop's either, but, it also had one of those square holes.

I'm sorry -- I'm the most computer dumb person alive! How am I supposed to get my DSL to hook up to my laptop?
