Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.
Note: no need for any CDs to "install" anything.
