This is a wireless access point. you can connect your router to this to add wifi to your network. This is NOT a router (and it should be connected to a router) so wifi setup will be much easier for you.

Do try to find some similar looking router from that scarp. e.g any of these which support dd wrt http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linksys_WRT54G_series and http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices
