Question about Computers & Internet
The only "installation" you need for the router is to connect it to the modem, plug in the power and, if it's a wired router, to connect it to the computer.
Then configure your computer's internet connection to connect to the router. (How you do that depends on which operating system the computer is running.)
If you're getting a wireless connection with no router, you're connecting to someone else's router - which is both illegal and dangerous (it gives them access to your computer).
