How do I make my Linux computer work with a wireless Belcan router?

I need step by step instructions. I just had linux put on my desktop computer. I have a wireless adapter that plugs into the pc. Where do i get the software to run the router with Linux? can I download the install program onto a usb drive and then install it on the linux computer? will the linux computer even recognize the usb?

for starters, if the wireless adapter is sb, post the output of lsusb (open a terminal, type 'lsusb > usbdevs', then open the file usbdevs with a text editor such as gedit, and paste the contents into the forums between a set of code tags ( [ code ] [ /code ] (minus the spaces) )
