Are you sure the problem is with the router and not with the wireless card? Many wireless cards are unfortunately not supported in Linux.

Have you followed the instructions in the User Manual from Page 25 onwards? They take you through manually setting up your router. Make sure you are connected to the router with an ethernet cable plugged into a LAN not WAN port, throughout the manual setup stage.
