Netgear wireless ubs adapters thumb drive same OR differant

Hello,
I am attempting to set up my first wireless network in my home. I have a cable provider for my internet.
A friend gave me a netgear wireless router without any softwear disk. Can someone tell me what I need to do and or buy to get wi fi in my home
Thanks
Doug

  1. software is not needed to setup a wireless router.

    try connecting to it via your browser by using 192.168.1.1

    for more info download the user manual.

    you will need a wireless network card. I would go for a N-type card, preferably PCI or PCIe. I only like to use USB if I really have to.

    by the way in most cases a network cable provide better connection than wireless especially when gaming.
