Unfortunately we don't provide step-by-step instructions in this forum - we believe in helping people to help themselves. The idea is you should give yourself a try at solving your problem first; and then we assist you when you get stuck.

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

What exactly do you mean with 'install your wireless router'? There's no need to install anything in Linux to be able to access your router. You just type the IP address of the gateway (your router) in a webbrowser, for example http://192.168.0.1 and access the build in web interface.

If you mean configuring wireless networking on your Ubuntu then specify your wireless network card. Info can be found with this command:
Code:
lspci
Post the info here and we'll see if we can be of any help.

Kind regards,

Eric

The wireless card is apparently a Broadcom Coporation BCM4311. How do I access it?

Use a cable and install b43-fwcutter
Code:
sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter
If it doesn't perform well, remove it and install the windows driver using ndiswrapper (as explained in the links Linus72 posted).
