Get something like this.
Since you have a modem I figure your modem is by a computer hooked up to a wire.
Take the ethernet cable (Usually yellow or blue) and unplug it from your computer and hook it into the router you bought.
Then take the router's ethernet cable (Some come with them some don't) and hook it up to the computer.
That computer is using wired internet.
For your computer you will need a wireless network card.
Plug that into your PCI Express slot.
Then you have to install it by using the CD that came with it.
Now that hardware is in, software time.
Go to the computer WITH the router, and set up a home network (Make sure it is protected, and write that password down somewhere)
Then go to your computer with the new wireless adapter, and search for network, when you find yours (You will be able to name your network) hook up to it and type password in.
Now you're set
