Ok, this statement confuses me.
What kind of setup do you have right now? Do you have a modem from your ISP that is connected to high speed interent like DSL or Cable? Or do you have a phone cord that goes into the back of your computer?
If you do in fact have high speed and you have a modem from your ISP then you will need to do the following:
1. Unplug the ethernet cable that connects the computer to the modem.
2. Plug that ethernet cable into the router's "internet" port.
3. Plug another ethernet cable into one of the "numbered" ports on the router.
4. Plug the other end of that ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the back of the computer.
In order to login and setup the router you computer must be connected to it via ethernet cable. Once you do this, you will get an IP address from the router. Then you will be able to login to it and properly configure it.
You may have to contact the ISP to get the proper settings to configure the router so that the modem will allow the router to access the internet.
On the other hand, if you have "dial-up" where you have a phone line going from a wall jack to your computer and the phone is unable to be used while on the internet then you can not use a router.
