How to Install the Belkin Wireless G Router Without the Software
Every router is equipped with a router utility that can be accessed using a Web browser. This allows you to manually setup the router, but also make adjustments after you have initially set it up. Normally, the router is packed with a CD that assists you in setting up the wireless settings, but you can use the router utility instead.

- Internet modem
- Modem cable
Connect the modem cable from the wall jack to the Internet modem. If you have DSL, the modem cable will be a phone line. If you have cable modem or fiber optics, the modem cable will be a coaxial cable.
