If you need to connect onto a wired connection - just connect the usb-ethernet adaptor to the first port of the router (the first of the bank of 4 marked "LAN".).
boot the pc after connecting, and make sure that the XP firewall is disabled.
you should then be able to get a browser up and connect to 192.168.1.1 - and you should be connected.
