You need an Ethernet port. There should be one in your computer, integrated in your motherboard. Usually it's next to the USB ports and it'll look like an oversized telephone hookup.

If you currently have an internet connection, then you already have a modem since the modem is the interface between the ISP and your home/office. A router allows you to connect multiple devices to that same connection.

Are you saying that your current modem doesn't have a built-in router? That's a very common situation. Usually the modem has an Ethernet cable output that you can then connect to a router (such as your Archer).

Can you post a picture of your current setup so that we can better understand what you are trying to do?

Thanks for posting that picture Dalton, are there any ports on the back that aren't being used? Maybe you could post another picture showing the back panel.

It might be wisp or might not but that is really irrelevant to the original question of how to connect the Archer router.
