Default setting up wireless

i`m new to this so i`m sorry if this is a stupid question.. I have NTL cable broadband coming into my house but i want to move my desk top pc to the other end of the house.I have purchased a Belkin wireless g router and a wireless usb on the advice of a sales person in pc world but when i opened the box and read the instructions it seams i have to connect the router to a pc when setting up ?? Do i need to connect to a wired pc and then any other pc`s will be wireless ? Thanks in advance

The Wireless Router has four wire ports and can connect to many Wireless equipped computers.

It is advisable to put at least one computer with a Wire, http://www.ezlan.net/faq.html#onewire

I need a Wireless Card what should I get?

You only need to have the wired connection while setting up. Once you are set up and the wireless configuration is correct you can unplug the wired computer.
