If you have DSL/CABLE then you get one of those Wifi+Router boxes you see for 20 bucks and up.

You don't have a router.

I looked up that device and it's not much use here. Time to go shopping for a Wifi router and what connection you want for the console.

No need for me to duplicate install instructions from and in that box you'll get.

If you are on dialup, then get a dialup setup, but I hear gaming is less than happy on dialup.
