IS Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller

Specs: Windows Vista
I've been trying to hook up Netgear WGR614 v6 router to my desktop and once I plug in the ethernet cables through the router I can no l longer connect to the internet to set up the router. I am wondering if the problem is not having a wireless adaptor. Does anyone know if the the Broadcom 440x is one or not?

"I can no l longer connect to the internet to set up the router."

You are not on the internet to setup the router. Setting up the router gets you internet access.

You can not connect and configure the router via wireless. You have to do it wired first.

Doesn't appear you are following the routers manual. It tells you step by step how to configure your workstation to then connect to the router.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

The Broadcom is the adapter for the wired port. You can setup the Netgear through a wired connection. First you must have the proper drivers installed in your computer. First motherboard chipset, then network adapter. Then a web browser.

It's for wired connection.
The 10/100 means, that you can connect this network controller to a 10 Mbit/s or 100 Mbit/s network.
These are typically wired networks.
Wireless networks works on 11, 22, 54, 108, 150, 300 Mbit/s.
