How to connect to router through adapter

I have an USB adapter and a "Level One" wireless router (FBR-1418TX). I don't know how to connect to the router through my adapter. Do I have to use special software?

Please help

You can't connect a router using the RJ45 connection type to a connection type using USB that I know about. The router would need a driver installed for the USB and you can't do it.

What you need to do is have the ISP give you a modem that has RJ45 or go buy a modem that has RJ45 that has been approved to run on the ISP's network.

On the other hand and you other machines wire or wireless that you want to use too, then you can leave the computer connected to the USB modem, buy a RJ45 NIC (Network Interface Card) and plug it into the computer, use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on the USB NIC, and connect the router into the RJ45 NIC on the computer.

The first option is better for you with RJ45 router to modem letting the router be that gateway to the Internet and the protection it provides for the machines connected to it.
