Each particular model of router has its own access username (like admin), password and IP addy pre-configured at the factory; they should be indicated on the router label or in user manual. You should then change the password and, maybe, username to your own.
That should be all you need, other than choosing your encryption method and key for the wireless network and setting your ISP username and password in the router
I had no trouble setting up a Netgear DG834G wireless router to work with Orange, replacing my Speedtouch USB modem. No additional software was needed on the PC.
