Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

\015\012Your modem that was given to you by your Internet provider, should have come with an ethernet cord and a USB cord. The USB cord is what is used if you do not have an ethernet adapter. There should also be software which contains the USB drivers in the box.
\015\012
\015\012Run the software and it will tell you when to plug the modem in. It will want you to reboot. After rebooting it ill walk you through on how to configure the router.
